We are back home and recovering. Two things we learned this week at the annual family North Carolina beach trip:Tidbit #1: Matilda is now totally fearless in the water. She wants to swim by herself and cannot understand why you insist on touching her all the time. It looks like I am trying to drown her here but really I am just trying to hold on as she wiggles away. M had a blast in the water and really wants to swim alone and drank a lot of sea while trying. Tidbit #2: It is a damned good thing I don't live in the South. I have no willpower for these. With honey butter. Oh my gosh.
