I say "introduce" because I refuse to accept that that time at Camber Sands was Emily's introduction to sand (See Disillusioned Med Girl, Meet Sand). It just didn't count.
She loved it. It's the "seaside" to her (how very British), and apparently, we were there with Peppa and George, though she was the only one who could see them.
Adam was less impressed. Especially as it was windy and he just wanted his milk.
We treated her to a new bucket and spade set (seeing as how we'd forgotten to bring one)
Soon it was lunchtime which brought about the task of convincing her we had to leave the sand behind. What ensued was a neverending conversation that went like this:
E: I want to play with the saaaand! *whine* *pouty face*
Me/D: We'll go back next weekend, I promise we will. You can play in the sand then.
E: Ooooookay. I happy now.
Breathe. And repeat (x 9865436)
Naptime didn't come a moment too soon.
