We took an impromptu trip to the beach this past weekend and The First Mate put his toes into the sea and sand for the first time.
I managed to get a few pictures in between cleaning the sand out of his mouth and helping to make sandcastles.
I learned that becoming the mother of a son has really calmed me. I am so much more easy going that I used to be. I HATE getting dirty, but I didn't bat an eyelash seeing The First Mate literally bury himself in sand and make sand angels. I have succumbed to the fact that their will be messes, and it's important to let him learn and explore.
|Sorry for the closed eyes, it was bright outside and The First Mate started eating sand after this so I couldn't snap another picture.|
However, I did get to see this adorableness after bath time!
Have any other moms felt this way with their first child?
