I suppose we could have just stayed home and read on the couch, because reading is what we ended up mostly doing the other day when Baby-Girl and I went to the beach.
We tried a new beach, one weâ€™d driven by before but never stopped at, one that proved to be less swimmable than we had hoped. So, instead of swimming, we played catch with shells for a while, and then Baby-Girl made a fort using towels and the back of my chair. While she built, I read.
â€œIâ€™m on page 147,â€ she said, as if that explained things, and continued reading. So I went back to my book, too, and we both read for the rest of our time at the beach.
I suppose, then, that we could have just stayed at home to read.
