Parenting choices

Do you take a picture or help your child? Yemaya got my shirt and was
trying to put it on. She wasn't crying, but was a bit stuck. So, I
took a picture.

Playing in the cockpit

It was a failure. The water too cold, the breeze too much, the baby too cranky. It is hot. We are both sticky with sweat. The drops of it beading up on the bridge of our noses. I thought how nice it would be to close off the sea cocks, put a little water in the cockpit and have a little pool time in our always available kiddie pool. I put up some shade, filled it up, got the baby naked and plopped her in.


She hated it. She tried to climb out. Her little skinny legs not long enough to get out. She stood on her tiptoes to avoid having any contact with the water. Besides the crying baby, I was kinda enjoying myself. A light breeze, afternoon sun, cool water on my feet, and the quiet sounds of halyards blowing around.

So now we sit down below, breastfeeding and sweating. At least one of us seems happy with the afternoon activity. Enjoy it while you can baby.
