Fatherhood Moment

Family picnic at Lafontaine Parc.

Kids abound, around, all over the park. Couples are pushing strollers with two dogs on a leash next to them. Someone you don’t know is prepping the tables, two of them side by side. Friends of friends are unpacking the kids and some toys for everyone.

Kao’s in charge somewhere. Dee found herself a stick so she’s good for a good half hour. You sit and chill, talking with the other dads about work and beer and other things you don’t really care or know about but its all good.

Then you get to watch over the children on their way to the playground, stand at the entrance, the five of them following the leader around the monkey bars and slides, moving as a herd.

You hear the disant sound of cars over at Rachel street. Birds and leafs are moving in the wind, breeze is fresh and hoodies are on. Air is filled with the scent from someones coffee somewhere.

Life is good.
