Emma Jane's Babies
Jarred Hugged His Flag So tight At The Parade
Remember when Mama was so proud that Daddy was in the service? Remember that time she dressed baby Jarred up in his sailor outfit for the Fourth of July parade and ho big his eyes got when we strutted by in our snazzy black band uniform with all those gold trumpets and tubas sparkling away in the sun? Remember when the soldiers came marching by carrying big American flag and Jarred waved his little stars and stripes back and forth and saluted so bravely? Remember how Mama almost cried when Jarred hugged her around the knees and asked “when Dada comin home?” Remember when?
