So this is a bit different. I don't normally share private moments with my girls but yesterday was so special with my Maya. She asked me if I can give her a day of what I do when I'm alone. I told her my days to myself start early. She said she'll not complain no matter what. You see I don't do complaining or nagging... children or adults. I completely will zone you out. Zero patience for that. So I woke her at 4a.m. We got to the beach of her choice by 5a.m., I told her now we run barefoot . At times she'd tire, so I told her to speed walk behind me. But she did it! Then we swam out to a bouy, which I was nervous about because she's never swam out that far. We tanned on top of it for a while and swam back to shore. By noon she noticed how crowded this beach of her choice was becoming. And suddenly my child said something to me that made me feel so happy. She said, "Mama, you're right. Nature is best when you're alone. I understand why you go to your secret beach now. I know you're not enjoying yourself with all these people, because when you're uncomfortable you get very quiet." So I asked her if she'd like to go to my secret beach... hike down and up and all it comes with. And she said yes. We spent the rest of the day at my secret beach... alone. Her and I. The waves were ours alone. The sand knew only us. The ocean breeze knowing I'm the woman that will never give the location of this beach away. And as we ate our fruit. Maya says ..." It's like this beach belongs to you. This is the best day ever. But you're exhausting mom!"
I will say we got pounded by the waves here. It was the best, when they smack you, the exhilaration of it. You're not a true Californian if you don't know how to embrace these waves. And yes I did exhaust her. What can ah say... I have crazy energy.
