Responsible parenting and leadership are a start. In between reaching for the sky (Toy Story rocks).

Screw the darkness. I prefer the lightness of Pop.

Yes, Mama. Safety first. No chocolate.

Okay, I know Bea's only 19 months old and the Pacific has a relentless rip tide, but do we really need to put our little surfer girl on a leash?

I mean, none of the other kids wore a leash.

"Oh yeah, Daddy? If all the other kids jumped off a cliff, would you follow?"

No Mama. No.

Safety first. That's the rule.

Mercy, no leash hinders Bea's unleashed love of sea and spray. Oh, how she digs the water. Giggling and jumping and squealing and krumping.


At this rate she'll be surfing Steamer Lane in a few years, and trying out for So You Think You Can Dance.

Have you ever been in the Pacific on the Monterey Bay? It's really friggin' cold -- 55 degrees cold.

But back to the leash. Doesn't it remind you of this SNL skit?

Yes, Mama. Safety first. No chocolate.

  1. She's so little. The rip tide is so strong. The waves are so high. Mama knows best!
