missing the beach

About half of our beach snapshots look something like this.

sigh. i guess it's a dad thing. despite all my horrified clucking, my husband loves throwing our son up to terrifying heights, too.

this pic is adorable, but it makes me so nervous!

I would disagree that love and joy between parents and kids is rare. I think showing it publicly is rare.

As for throwing kids in the air. I say the higher the better. I can't wait to have my own so I can send them up there.

I call this "detachment parenting", and it is something I practice with joyful regularity.

My absolutely favorite photo of my dad and me is quite similar to the color shot you posted. My dad was about your age and I was about your son's age. I'm 25 now and keep the picture on my dresser. It's the first thing I look at every morning, a reminder that the purest joy can be found in the simplest of moments.
