Oh, what beach, what beach? I hail from that sublime coast! And now in Switzerland so miss the ocean. I also probably fall into the neurotic category of parenting...is it tougher now a days, or are the standards just higher? Great post.

I also fall into the “keeping their eyes trained on the disappearing and resurfacing head of their children” camp. Especially since Damien is not only water mad- he also has a thing for sharks (he wants to be a marine biologist)

Hello from NY! I wanted to tell you that you are not alone. I went to an amusement park this weekend with my 5 of my 7 kids. What a mistake!! To make matters worse, Dad wanted to take the 3 1/2 yr old on the water flume!! As if gravity wouldn't have pulled Little One out of his arms!! I know I grayed that night. kNever again! They killed their chances for Six Flags and Sesame Place this year!! I am not even thinking about Hershey Park, (even though that one was more for me, the chocoholic)! This weeend, I am sticking to either a mall, a zoo or a museum of their choice. I won't need CPR during that outing...

I'm wondering what beach you went to. My family used to always got to Misquamicut Beach when I was little. I agree, beaches are high stress for me now that I have kids. I am amazed to remember how my parents used to let us walk to the beach alone, when we were only 9 and 10. Course, we spent most of our time in the arcades, playing Ms. Pacman . . .

I think parenting has changed. I don't know the cause but we are certainly more involved and sometimes neurotic than our predecesors.
