Here is this cutest little boy who is gazing up with pure admiration at his Dad as the Dad loaded laundry into the upper dryer today at the World's Largest Laundromat. I couldn't get the Dad on paper. You have maybe 10 seconds to get the whole scene and I was enjoying the wheels.
Kids run around and scream and play tag and make drawings and eat various items of non-nutritious deliciousness and throw howling tornado fits and sometimes, if they have a supremely cool Dad, they even get to ride around in the carts used for dragging the wet stuff to the dryer and the dry stuff to the table and thus and such and so forth and so on.
I love it-the entire scene and not just because they're not my children except in the 'It takes a village' sort of sense-which means when I get back into my truck it is silent and there are no Cheerios stuck in the crack in the seat. It is because these moments go by so fast and I am permitted a front seat to the extravaganza.
