The Park

Really now, whose child is that?

I don't know what anyone else thought
who saw her swinging there
but part of me couldn't stop laughing
because she looked so silly

And part of me didn't want to be seen
as the one pushing her
because then everyone would know
that it was me
who was the bad mom
who forgot to bring coats for my children
while on an outing to the park
on a freezing cold day.

D didn't look quite as silly
wearing Kyler's coat. . .

 Handsome Kacin . . .

 Look at the hero
who offered his coat to his little brother. . .

Jacqui knew how to stay warm--
by playing on the playground, of course.

 Sweet little eskimo Macie . . .
