Their Mom, D, has become a great friend to me. I really only got close with her this year, and hardly a day goes by that we don't speak to each other - at least once, maybe ten times! We both have 'mommy brain" and often had to call back to say we forgot something. We both laugh at each other and at ourselves. It is great to find a friend that you really connect with. That shares your morals and your values. That shares views and child raising. That makes you laugh. That is a good listener. That you can vent to. That understands you.
Justin had a girlfriend on the beach today. I could tell that he really liked her. So much in fact that he tried to hit her with a shovel and feed her sea weed. That is love if I ever saw it! She kept smiling at him and making flirty faces. It was too cute!
Sean and I caught a crab by the jetty when the tide went out. He was a little scared of it. I scooped it up with a larger clam shell and dropped it into a bucket with some sand and water. We looked at it for a while and then put it back in the ocean. I was afraid that the boys would be fearful of the ocean seeing a crab come out of it, but they were okay. It was a baby crab, after all. I am not sure how they would feel about a bigger one. Good thing there are no Alaskan King Crabs around here! They did ask if there were big crabs like on The Deadliest Catch! Love that show, by the way!
yummy, sea weed!
