Vignette #1

It's these moments
standing, leaning over you
struggling to push your chubby red-striped-sock feet
through jeans
   as you play the har-MAH-li-ka
that make me happy.
It wasn't a sudden realization
   like when you figured out
   how to slide the harmonica back & forth between your lips.
It's been a slow trickle,
this realization
that parenthood fits better than I'd thought it would.
