Lady J: Mom, can we play on the beach playground?
Me: What beach playground?
Lady J: You know… The green and brown one. It’s right on the beach. The one with the climbing things and tunnels.
Me: There’s no playground on the… Wait, you mean the drainage pipe? Sure… Why (the heck) not. (I feel like getting berated by complete strangers as to how I should raise my children anyway.*) Let’s go!
Lady J: Thanks, Mom! You’re the best mom we’ve ever had!
(That last part always amuses me, no matter how many times I hear Lady J say it…)
*It should be noted that I was only berated by one complete stranger as MY children happily played on the “playground”. But that’s for another post at another time…maybe…
