We woke up, rolled out of bed and decided to go have breakfast in the fog on the lifeguard tower. A chocolate donut with sprinkles for her and coffee for me. I know I need to set a better example and make a healthy breakfast but I also love being that mom who wakes up and says, “So what do you want to do today?” and then does it.
I just have to make sure she eats healthy the rest of the day. Maybe tomorrow we’ll have donuts and milk. Just kidding. Tomorrow we’ll stay home and have eggs or something. It’s just fun when we get back home from visiting the sticks or a friend’s house to go check in with our ocean. You know, to make sure it’s still there.
Which it was. It was our old beach without a tourist in sight. I’m sure by noon it was packed but in the morning, when it’s foggy, it’s all ours.
It’s US time. The rest of the day was filled with errands and housework and I knew I wouldn’t have a minute to sit down and play with her. I always feel guilty about busy chore-filled days. I know she’s learning to play by herself and being bored is the best way to grow your imagination but I always feel a little bit guilty that I haven’t given her at least a sibling to play with. I know. I need to get over that.
Being an only child is not a bad life.
Unless you get eaten by a shark! Just kidding again. I just had to throw that photo in there too. We found this toy rubber shark on the beach and had a little fun with it. If you ever leave something at the beach, you should ask us if we’ve seen it. We find all sorts of things left behind. It’s like we’re the beach’s lost and found. I even turned in an expensive watch the other day. So if you’re missing a shark, we’ve got it. A brown plastic shovel too.
