We walked in the San Francisco Pride parade this weekend. Weeks ago we checked out A Pig Parade Is A Terrible Idea at one of our weekly library visits, and ever since Bridget has called all parades Pig Parade. She doesn’t seem disappointed that they never have any pigs, though.
After trying out a few toddler-sized explanations of why we were walking in this particular parade, I settled on this: We’re in this parade because we think it’s okay for anybody to love anybody else. When she gets older we can add more explanation, like how it’s possible that anyone would disagree.
If you watch this video very carefully you can see me in a red hat, walking at the far side of the street starting around 10 seconds. Bridget’s in the baby carrier and I think she’s actually nursing! (Bridget’s dad is more difficult to spot, but he’s there.)
