Summer is here!
I live in a constant pulling contest between getting housework done and exploring and playing with the baby. Some weeks I feel like I get so busy with play dates and family obligations that I fall so far back in laundry that I’ll never catch up. So every once in a while I’ll just make plans to have no plans. I’ll wrap Sadie up on my chest and she’ll just have to enjoy the view while I wash dishes, do laundry, sweep, scrub and spray. Two days ago was one of these days. I had a big day planned. Go to Target, finishing putting the bedroom back together after our big day of painting over the weekend, work on the yard, etc.
But then I got a call from my brother Jared. He said that him and my sister Jamie were going to the beach and they wanted Sadie and I to join. I told him I couldn’t and that I had too much to do. After I hung up the phone, I thought to myself that the beach sounded really nice. I asked the wise Devin Foley for advise on what I should do. Because I was now very perplexed. He said, seize the day.
So I called Jamie and Jared back and said, “Wait for me! I’m coming! Carpe Diem!!”
And I carpe diemed the crap out of the day.
It was Sadie’s first official day at the beach. She’s been to the ocean a handful of times, but it had never been warm enough for her to touch the water and
play with eat the sand.
She loved it.
We went to Point Dume in Malibu. It was so crystal clear it almost looked like Hawaii. We saw a bunch of dolphins and sea otters playing. It was incredible. We actually even saw a deer on the way home. It was a majestic ending to the day.
Someone took a lil nap.
Just in case you were wondering – I got the laundry done yesterday. All is good.
