Hold on, Baby

6 Mar

Two big girls dash past you at the park and I see the look on your face as you follow them with your eyes. Someday, I promise. Someday – sooner than later – you’ll be on the move as quickly as those big kids. You’ll be tearing around the park and there will be another little boy, maybe one with curly blonde hair, watching enviously as you run and jump and shriek.

But now you’re small. You reach up and wrap your little hand around one of my fingers and walk me over to the little swings. We’re both content to wait for another day to run and jump. For now.
