one hundred and eight
the number of chaleesas
sung for my father


their first baseball game
happy crowds, hot dogs, home runs
a smashing success

three year old, absorbed
forgets to use the bathroom
giant, stinky mess

pouring lemonade
on your brother’s head because
he did not say no

five year old’s meltdown
obliterates storytime
parenting is tough

cooking together
three girls in matching aprons
parenting is fun

constant vigilance
neverending needfulness
parenting is hard

concerned by the snow
she wants god’s cell phone number
childhood innocence

sixtieth birthday
head-shaving celebration
quintessential dad
