The view from the top was breath-taking and totally worth the burning thighs and near-to-exploding ovaries (stupid midlife!) and, yet, the day was filled with bittersweet moments of regret, too.
Good thing my 15yo takes awesome photographs (not to mention, gives good glare) and, well, maybe I should just let her keep the frigalicious camera [one beat, two beats] naaaaah, I mean, really, learning how to share stuff is what we do best, here at Casa de Sticky Floors and Crunchy Feet.
This capture of my youngest daughter, however, made me realize just how GROWN these kids insist on, you know, growing.
[borrows glare from 15yo]
I am, however, also very happy (AM SO!) especially, since the kids and I seem to be able to enjoy each others company.
Dare I say, even a little more, now, than when they were babies, maybe, because I'm not so worried about counting heads, or chasing after them, at the beach?
Aaaaand, okay, maybe my baby days ARE over (light bulb, rusted) but, my job, here, is far from done, my friend, and well, I'm just glad I remembered to pack my comfy sneakers.
And, maybe a snack...also, a cell phone...so, I can google the nearest bathroom...stupid beach, dumbass bladder!
