a picnic at the beach
became naked swimming session in the rock pool (us mamas stayed clothed and dry). sunny and bright i chased my giggling toddler around and around as he threw pebbles into the sea. a fast and swirling in-coming tide made for the best kind of puddles. i mastered the art of putting up the beach umbrella. and i realised that when you take a child to the beach the mama always looks like she's leaving home for a week. a morning spent with mumas and their children, in bright winter sunshine, near the water's edge is good. and makes me feel happy. inside and out. while he slept oh so well this afternoon...i cooked pumpkin soup and knitted a few more rows. and talked to my mum who is knitting with bamboo - the sweetest little vest for the little boy who makes us all smile a little bigger. i love days like today. i hope you get one soon.
