This weekend we visited the sandy, white beaches of Destin, Florida.
I had never been to Destin (which means Anna had never been). I was expecting—something like the Outer Banks, I suppose? I have a lot of friends who love it, so I was picturing quiet, remote, lovely. Not–Ocean City meets Rehobeth meets Virginia Beach. Consider it checked off the bucket list.
Thankfully, my girlfriend’s house was on a more isolated part of the island. We had our own pool, beach, and water taxi.
Anna likes to get in and out of the pool and run. This is why mommy has stayed so thin.
Anna cannot pronounce flag. Well, she can, it just sounds a lot like “Fu-ag” Which, sounds very close to F@$K. So, basically, my kid, probably, gets her mouth washed out with soap every day at school. Which, fun fact, her teacher told me they call her Mockingbird because she says everything they say and I have THAT kid, but at least she’s not the smelly kid?
Anna does not like the beach. At all. After two hours, she MAYBE warmed up to the idea.
Vacationing alone with a toddler is not easy. Vacationing with two toddlers? Aye, yai yai–maybe we will put an indefinite hold on baby number two. But she was fun. And look at that tanline!
Happy Fourth of July Everyone!
