Summer 2017

Its Summer 2017 and the kids are growing up fast, AG has the body of a gymnast and the soul of a poet, TC has the body of an athlete and the kind of laser-focus my magpie mind can only stare in wonder at.

Who they are now seems a mile away from the babes in arms I once held, but they still love to give me cuddles and haven't realised yet how quite ridiculous I am.

I have been helping TC to learn to ride his bike, I was just trying to work out how to teach him how to set off without help when he zoomed past me and off into the distance. It feels like a metaphor.

I like being a dad.
