Little man took his first long walk today at Trout Lake. One of my favourite places. I think he was inspired by the East Van peers he had been observing all day. So happy he walked when I wasn’t away. I’ve had the first verse of “Cat’s in the Cradle” churning through my head since the day he was born…
My child arrived just the other day,
He came to the world in the usual way.
But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay.
He learned to walk while I was away.
And he was talking ‘fore I knew it, and as he grew,
He’d say, “I’m gonna be like you, dad.
You know I’m gonna be like you.”
