My Feral Children and I are very lucky to live on the beautiful South coast of England, within a couple of miles of the most gorgeous sandy beach.
I try to take them to the beach as often as I can, all year round. This is not because I am a wonderful back-to-nature type parent. It’s more because the kids love it there so will happily get in the car (outbound trip only), they can run around like complete loons without trashing my house/garden, and a morning of digging sometimes wears them out enough for me to hit the parenting jackpot of a Dual-Child Nap.
But every morning before a beach trip, I ask myself the question, “Will today be an Alpha Mummy visit, or a Beta Mummy visit?”
Needless to say, our trips are usually far more Beta than Alpha, but if I’m lucky we get a few Alpha moments along the way for the old Instagram feed…
