a new generation

While out doing errands this morning I saw some evidence of a change in the ways of parenting pertaining to the Daddy side of things. The first sighting was of two youngish men out for a walk, each carrying a baby in a chest papoose. The Dads were strolling along at a jaunty pace, chatting happily while the little babies peered out at the passing scene. The second was a shirtless Dad pushing a "jogging" stroller, baby on board and leashed dog trotting along by the side. The moms are probably working on a cure for cancer, running a Fortune 500 or at home finishing the re-write to the last chapter of their latest book before sending it off to the publisher.

Or those first two dads could have been a gay couple with their twins who were carried in utero by a surrogate mother . . . these days, take nothing for granted.

It's good to stop and appreciate how far we've all come in a relatively short period of time, isn't it?
