"this was a fun day, mommy"

Dear Stinky,

I said 'yes' a lot yesterday. Saturday, at Uncle Bubba's wedding and reception, there were too many 'no's. So when we arrived at the coast, I practiced my yes-es. Enjoy your first time in the ocean fully clothed. Blow bubbles in it. Throw mud. Splash us , jump on skimboards and be the wild man that makes me crazy. You can't do much wrong running around the beach. Write in the sand with sticks, and carry feathers and dismembered crab legs as your beloved treasure. Chase me pretending to be a pirate and knock me in the water.
What surprised me most was that when I needed to say no, you listened. We got you, daddy, and me into dry clothes and liberally applied the hand sanitizer. Then, you snuggled and whispered "this was a fun day."
Yes, Stinky. Yes, it was a fun day. We will say 'yes' more often.
Love,
Mommy
