När Min Pojke Gå På Stan

I saw a video by the Swedish band Doktor Kosmos yesterday of a song called (translation) "When my boy goes to town" (När Min Pojke Gå På Stan). It is a song which captures something of how I feel about my own son, Silas, and how he lives his life. This is especially true of the opening verse which goes something like: "we wake up and eat breakfast and he plays with lego and then we walk to the day center and he finds a stick he likes on the way and asks if we can play cops and robbers after I pick him up in the afternoon"..nothing earth shattering but just how much can any heart bear (ask a parent).
HERE is the Swedish for those learning the language.
