Just a fence post

Last week, I took my son to work, and on the way back we meandered at his pace on the way to pick up his sister from school. We had an hour to go a few blocks, and we took that whole hour. He loves to sit on things, especially when his feet reach the ground. On our route, he tested out every conceivable chair including this construction fence post. There were workers putting finishing touches on a site we have watched over the weeks, there were passers by, and there were innumerable things that I have no idea what they were. They did capture my son’s attention, but center to his focus was the concrete base that joined two fence sections. It was a perfect seat to be tried out over and over again. It also was a great platform from which to watch everything else and from which to start trying to climb along the bottom rail of the fence. This one spot, not one that I would select for interest level, maintained his focus for over half an hour.
