Kids

Leaving yoga this morning, I saw a group of very young kids from the next door daycare going on a walk with the daycare workers. They had them all tied together and it reminded me of some bizarre chain gang. Two year olds frog marching through the parking lot. :)

Two or three of them spotted me walking to my car and helled out "hello." I waved back and one of them told me he was going on a walk. One of the other little boys just kept talking as if he was carrying on a conversation--perhaps with me. Or perhaps he was trying to start some kind of daycare chain gang escape.

But they all looked like they were having a great time shuffling through the parking lot. Even the one who seemed to be making a break for it.

My parents used some kind of harnass/leash with me when I was around 2 or 3. Apparently, I was quite the runner as a toddler and would dart out into traffic or just take off. Thankfully, my child doesn't share those tendencies and I am not that out of shape that I couldn't catch her.

My dad taught me how to direct traffic.

Maybe they just had a failure to communicate.
