Just like the rest of the social media world, I’m sharing my Labor Day adventures. And like many parents of small children, sometimes I feel like it is more work than it’s worth to take kiddos to the beach. Let’s be frank. Parents still have all the normal responsibilities PLUS the added bonus of hauling beach paraphernalia, applying multiple layers of sunscreen and washing sand off of EVERYTHING. But my kids are 8, (almost) 10, and 12. It shouldn’t be too hard anymore…except that my (almost) 10-year-old can’t walk.
Wow. Talk about an added layer of difficulty. Eric and I leaned heavily on our able-bodied children to do their own hauling, applying and washing because we were consumed with Anne. Getting her down to the beach was the easy part – it was washing all the sand off that was difficult! But I think it was worth it. Anne LOVED the beach.
Now I need a vacation from my vacation :) Happy Labor Day!
