Can You Stalk Your Own Kids?

With the kids in camp during the morning, I try to get work done but on occasion I have to run errands and I also have dog walking to do.

I always slow down and look for them.

Most of the time, I don’t see them because you can only see so much from the road, but sometimes I catch a glimpse.

I don’t know why, but it makes me feel happy to see them in their—I guess natural environment is the phrase—on their own and doing their thing.

I don’t park or anything, I usually just slow down for a minute as I pass.

It’s not a comfort thing, like I’m worried about their safety or anything. I just like seeing them on their own, making friends, playing and generally being kids.

It’s an aspect I don’t get to see—that most parents only get glimpses of. And those glimpses are not only short, but come when the parent is around which is going to change the natural dynamic while they’re playing because knowing you are watching by a parent always does.

Those glimpses, on the way to the store or to walk a dog, make me really happy. I’m not sure why.

I hope I’m not stalking my kids.
