The concrete sidewalk paths that wound around our housing development were perfect for a mother with small children.
There, my young boys could ride their big wheel, go puddle jumping and walk to a small wooden bridge where we used to feed the ducks and their ducklings in the water below.
All this while staying clear of any vehicles.
There was one path, however that led to a busy side street where cars would whip around a curve unexpectantly. And it was this path that we took once a week in order to trek over to our local library’s story time.
At that time in my life, I usually had one or two in the stroller and a few walking next to me, so it was important to find just the right break in traffic where we could all get across safely.
One thing I would say to my boys as they got in formation behind me was: “Remember to be like the ducks!”
You can probably picture us crossing: Me in front pushing the stroller and two or three boys behind trying to keep a tight line.
Just like a mama duck and her brood.
