The other day I was walking my son to school. Or rather, walking with my son from our remote parking space to school, remote because the driving/parking displays I have seen around school during drop off times seem to have been taken directly from a Freddy Krueger horror flick.
At one moment, as we were holding hands to cross the road, my son looked up at me and said "Abba [that’s me], I really enjoy our walks to school together". And he gave me one of his big, explosive and sincere, smiles.
It was one of those moments to cherish and remember. As far as parenthood is concerned, this is as rewarding as it's ever going to be.Image by Norbert Posselt, Creative Commons (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0) licence
