An Outie That Was Really An Innie In A Onesie

My Beloved and I plan to head out shortly after 1pm our time but I thought I’d share with you a quick note from our older son regarding our grandson:

“I thought Thomas had eaten so much his belly button had temporarily become an outtie. Nope! It was a Cheerio sitting in there under his onesie!”

(For readers from elsewhere in the world who may not use terms such as “Outtie and “Onesie”: Belly buttons that protrude are called “outies”, ones that don’t are called “innies”, and a “onesie” is a one-piece garment that have enclosures for feet) that babies and toddlers often wear in our part of the world and probably many other places too.)
