at the bull fight

he falls asleep during the 4th bull, despite the section of trombones and jello vendors. she carries him through the unfamiliar crowd. the older kids on roller coasters, bumper cars, Vortex. she sees a woman she knows who also has three kids, "where are the kids?" "oh, we left them at home." silly her. and he is four and silly. thank the moon, sun, stars that he is only four so she can carry him.

Great post. I love the photo and the line "silly her." Kids are the best. I am always happier with them then without them.
