Silent Night

My daughter started soccer practice a few weeks ago in the afternoons.  My son isn't interested in playing, so while he plays on the monkey bars, I read or text or instagram.  During one soccer practice recently, my son needed affection.  He climbed on my lap and began humming.  It wasn't until a few moments in that I realized that the 'lullaby' he was humming was "Silent Night."  We sat together on a hard bench on a soccer field in September, rocking to and fro. All was calm, all was bright.  Mother and child.
