One of my go to shows during the end of my pregnancy and during Vivi’s early days in our family was a reality series called Sand Masters. It followed professional sand castle makers all over the world as they made these enormous sculptures of sand that rivaled anything I have ever seen. The episodes were short and entertaining and got me through some rough patches over the last year…what I didn’t realize until today is that by watching that show I have become a bit of a sandcastle enthusiast. I’m not about to carve dolphins and sharks from the sand but you’d better believe that while Vivi napped and Addie waited in wild anticipation for the moment we could go out to the beach I gave her sandcastle building lessons in the hotel room.
Little did I know Addie was actually more excited about destroying them than building them.
