beach baby (v): a salty little sweetheart with sandy toes & a sunkissed nose
From January through to May. Keeping them busy, expending all the energy their little bodies seem to have endless amounts of. And then……the days get longer, the clothes get lighter…..spring is here and summer is coming! Right now it’s the sweet spot….warm enough to spend the afternoon on the sand, maybe dip our toes in the shallow pools that form before the break of the tide. And the anticipation and excitement builds, just like it does every year. It’s been like this for me since I was a child. There is something incredibly special about the beach…the breeze, the sunshine, the salty air. The white noise of the wind and the ocean, the wide open space. It’s magical. Something tells me that our kids “get it” too…..
In just a few short weeks preschool will be over, and we’ll be all beach-pool-repeat. It will be our shortest summer on record, with this girl starting kindergarten in the middle of August. (But let’s not talk about that.) So come on summer, we are ready and waiting. Bring. It. On.
