The Sitting: Sunny beach in Connecticut.
The Players: Two toddlers, Dad and a camera, Mom’s old bathing suit.
The Drama: Mom tries to keep her girls safe…both sets.
From a distance we are a mom and two daughters taking a dip.
Up close we are a mom being tugged
into a topless flashing scenario
at the happy hands of a 15 month old none too keen on waves.
Knowing I won’t call attention to myself in front of strangers
and in-laws alike by by screeching, “Yo, dad-man,
stop taking pictures, I’m hanging al fresco,”
Sean comes closer, rapid shooting no doubt.
