“I like you mommy. You aren’t useless like the other mommies”

Backstory – while looping the dog around the park I stopped at a bench by the playground to answer an email. I looked up periodically and noticed one mom chasing her pre-school age son around and playing follow-the-leader. That alone made me smile – albeit a bit envious – but I grinned ear to ear when I overheard his compliment to her.

Perhaps someone with less of an eye for anything related to physical activity would interpret the meaning differently but I think it was as spot-on as spot-on gets. I’ll leave it at that so as not to contaminate its purity. But maybe if you have a little one, or not so little one you can get to the playground for a quick round on the equipment…
