Top 5 Signs You're a Mom at the Beach

By Beth Anne Ballance |

Hey, y’all!  I just got back from a week at the beach and man, was it lovely.

Ocean. Coffee in the morning on the back porch. Listening to the waves and reading a book and taking naps.  I’ll be sure to tell you all about it here in a short bit but the biggest thing I noticed on this beach vacation is how I have officially transformed from beach babe to mom-on-the-beach:

Signs You're a Mom at the Beach

I'm all about the skin protection.

SPF 50 slathered all over me and my family, hats, cover-ups, and umbrellas. I don't even care about a tan at this point - I just don't want skin cancer.

How did you know you were finally “a mom” on the beach?

    So true! Although I was so focused on Baguette’s sun protection that I didn’t pay enough attention to my own. Fortunately my burn isn’t too bad, so it’s not the worst lesson I’ve ever had.

    I’m heading to the beach for a week-long vacation next week with my 3 year old. I had to buy new bathing suits and I found myself looking at the 2 piece tankinis with the skirted bottoms (Lands End!!). I know I’ll be in the sand playing instead of kicking back reading and soaking in the sun. I have the hats and sunscreen ready too. Beach vacations sure have changed!
