The Beach -Take 2

One of the first posts I wrote for this blog in September of 2011 was called “The Beach”

Have a quick read and you’ll understand why I have omitted our sandy coasts from the list of possible family outing locations. But these past 17 months have done wonders to heal the emotional trauma created on that fateful day, and I agreed to return this afternoon.

I now must announce that due to the two extra set of hands profound growth and maturation of my now three and two year old, from steadfast and strict parenting techniques that began from that day forward, resulting in consistent, dutiful adherence to my rules, astute listening skills, desire and need to please their guardians and therefore quickly follow our every direction, I can officially claim that my love and appreciation for the rolling tides and tranquil magic of the ocean, Pacific or Atlantic, has been restored

See for yourself.





Please feel free to contact me for expert parenting advice.

(Or…just bring a couple of extra adults along with you when you decide to take small children to the beach.)

Fact Check – all statements are true and correct, except for those insinuating I have any idea what the hell I am doing.

  1. Love it! Looks like a beautiful day and the pictures are wonderful!

  2. Awesome Em! You are a well-seasoned Motherhood expert, my friend! I’d call you for advice anytime!

  3. I remember reading that beach post, 17 months ago, and thinking how brave you were to attempt that trip alone with small children. As well as how it seemed like you were someone I could relate to. 😉 I am glad you have decided to put beach excursions back on your list of family activities. It looks like everyone had a great time today.
