“Play in the sand; splash in the water; get dirty; get wet. The beach is the only place my mom doesn’t get mad about me doing that stuff. Of course I love the beach!”
–Dixie Dykens (age 5)
I’m at the beach with my mom this week, so I thought this quote was hilarious. It’s funny how the roles reverse when you get older, and now I feel like I’m the mom taking care of the child.
