Turns out, I am the only mom who brings her kid to the beach before 8am
& on an overcast, sprinkly Sunday morning.
Oh, but we love it here. Peace & quiet on an early grey morning. Or bustling & sunburning on a more typical beach day. This is quickly becoming our second home. While L sleeps off the graveyard shift, Little N and I make for the beach. Kiddo busies himself with bubbles. I consume coffee and continue to wake up. (Mercifully, the car has learned to drive itself here.)
It's going to be a long summer of solo parenting for me.
I take some solace in a familiar place with plenty to explore.
