Our kids had to work.
None of the mothers there were able to relax and enjoy the benefits of a crawfish boil. These things are mostly about sitting outside and socializing and not so much about eating. Still, there was boiling water, open flame and things to climb. In other words, danger for little kids lurked just a few steps away at any moment. So, the young mothers in attendance stood at alert, their eyes always scanning.
Our eyes were on the prize: a plate of steaming mudbugs with all the trimmings. We may be grandparents one day and the vigil will be on again. For now, it's fun to sit back and watch.
