Now I have formally become the head of the nuclear family, i.e. an American nuclear family:
  • We spent the day at the beach.
  • I drove the family car there.
  • We brought the oversized cooler, filled with way too much food and drink.
  • My wife drove the stroller, with the car seat clipped on, from the car to the beach.
  • I put sun lotion on her back, while she nursed our daughter.
A perfect day, to be sure. But with a kid, now. Which made it all the more fine. Somehow.
