I'm going to miss these summer lunches. The kids ate lunch at this picnic table almost every day. Today we were able to sneak in a morning of swimming and a picnic lunch before the rain.
I was eating some seaweed salad. I shared with Tulip. "Mermaids eat this," I whispered to her. She nodded knowingly.
"Do you know who is a mermaid in this family?" I asked. She pointed to me, then to herself.
"I was a mermaid when I was a baby," she said.
"You were? How do you know that?" I asked.
"I was swimming under water," she replied, grinning, while making a swimming motion with her arms.
Tulip was born underwater, you know.
