When we had kids my husband (who loves the beach) pointed out that I was going to have to make some sacrifices in that area for the boys- him included. I fought it for awhile, I was making the decision that hey- my kids are totally fine without the beach. Then this happened:
Sand panic aside, it has been really fun letting go of the anxiety the beach used to give me and embrace the mess. This is another part of me being brave, letting my littles go crazy and enjoy the sunshine.
PS this was in February.East coast.. you can hate me now.
