8thdayfiction

…and on the 8th day, micro fiction was published on some dude's blog.

A Little Person

Jack and Marcy sat watching their baby girl eat. Now that Gaby was able to feed herself, the two of them had the luxury of just sitting back and watching from time to time.

“She’s growing up so fast,” Jack said. “Look at her feeding herself. She’s like a little person.”

And then, as if on cue, Gaby shrieked, swept all of her food off her high chair tray and onto the floor with one hand, and with the other, slapped herself in the head five times in a row.

“A little person, indeed,” Marcy replied. “A little insane person.”

*For Vera Rose. Happy 1st birthday to one of my two favorite little insane people.*
