the games of the fathers

we had a lovely time round some friends house this morning. they have children (two boys) the same age as our girls.
esther and adam loved playing on adam’s junior scaletric as the two fathers looked on, quietly itching to have a go themselves.
instead we were assigned roles of mechanics and car-replacers. a demanding job when the cars are driven by two 4 year olds who don’t understand about slowing down for corners
