I love the sand and the water and the way the sun beats down like nowhere else.
I love how wrapped up the kids get in playing.
And I don't even mind that I have to spend almost a day cleaning the sand out of the house, not to mention the van.
Tell me somewhere down the line, they will remember. Remember mom taking them all and the fun they had and maybe just a smidgen of the packing, the sandwich making, the snack buying, the walking, the giving baths and the vacuuming long after they have gone to bed.
I don't think I could ever forget these days even with the work that goes into them and I hope when I look back, somehow, I will have been the parent I wanted to be.
