i rode wave after wave. i came up for air and rode another.
i giggled as i rode one all the way to the shore.
i swallowed salt water and cut my foot on a shell.
my shoulders are sunburned and my eyes have that heavy washed out feeling from being in the salt air.
i declared today after seeing the beaming look on my girl’s faces that i will no longer be the mom who just dips her toes in and waves from afar.
