We did a little of this today:
And by “this”, I mean that we left the house at 9:00 am and didn’t get back until 5:30 pm. It was a full day of salty sea air, sunshine, and sand. Except for the 3 minutes where Sweetgirl went missing on a very crowded beach and I about lost my lunch at the one minute mark of the search (she was looking for “your umbrella, mama, and I couldn’t find it.”), it was a pretty great beach day.
Now, one would think that on the drive back home these two Sweetchildren of mine, and the two friends we had with us, would be wiped out. One would be flat-out wrong. After a day of fun in the sun, this is the conversation that took place in the car:
Sweetgirl: “Bum Burp Bum Burp Bum Bum Burp” (Sung to some I-Don’t-Have-A-Clue-What-Kind-Of-Tune. Followed by squeals of laughter from the 2 nine-year old boys as well as the other little girl in the car.)
Mama: “Sweetgirl, those aren’t words fit for a Lady. Especially a lady in training to be a princess.”
Sweetboy: “But they are if she’s a lady in ‘potty training’ mama, right?”
Oh, dear. Yes indeed child. Most unfortunately, yes, indeed.
