Girl Park

Remembers taking kids to park where, inevitably, every 42 minutes, an unfortunate child would wander in the arc of swing and get plowed by the swinger? Well I do! Every time . . . without fail. I failed the cheerful park mom merit badge.

So the kid wants me to go with her to the park. When the kids were tiny, I attentively put them in swings and pushed, caught them at the base of the slides and called out enthusiastically while they ran around “really fast, watch Mom!”
I did my park duty. I’m done with park duty. (Well perhaps as a grandma I could be called on to trudge to the park again.)  
With further questioning, it turns out the kid thinks I should go because I would have fun and I would meet new people . . 
park people . . .  
who evidently are happy and enthusiastic people.  
Oh honey, it’s cute that you think so.
