People watching is one of the best parts of a beach week. Here are a few of the moms we’ve been seeing this week.
Resort-wear beach mom– big floppy hat, sunglasses, cocktail, with a large straw bag clad in all the pink and lime south of the Mason-Dixon line.
Tired-toting mom– carrying all the bags, buckets and beach chairs while the kids race her up the beach pathSun screening mom– keeping 15-minute liberal sunscreen applications on point to protect her sun-loving kiddos
Inappropriate bathing suit mom– showing a little too much skin for the family friendly beach days, reliving those glory days of yesteryear.
Sand-loving mom– drip castle building, up to your neck burying mom who schools her kids in the ways of sandcastle masterpieces. Beach walker-power mom– the beach mom who is so tan she’s almost purple with bright blonde hair killing it on her daily walks
Book-reading beach mom– zoned out, enjoying kids from afar, sitting in a chair and soaking up the rays (I’m a bit partial to this one.) Water-playing mom– challenging her kids to boogie board contests and body surfing
Photo-taking mom– chasing kids around with a large lens camera, getting the best angle of her precious kiddos
I can be (almost) any of these mom’s depending on the day, and I’m loving our time at the beach!
