I don't have kids of my own so I can't claim to know the struggle first hand, but I have spent enough time around the little buggers to know a thing or two about what parents get to deal with on a daily basis. Bravo to these brave men and women who actually care enough about their offspring to spend quality time with them; whether it's watching a Disney movie for the 1,000th time that week or my favorite- bringing the whole gang to the beach to let the little ones run wild. The latter is where I've seen some of the wearier, dead-behind-the-eyes-tired and beaten "how did I get here" parents as they make desperate attempts to stop their little bundles of joy from terrorizing the rest of the beachgoers, assaulting mother nature, and capturing various seabirds as pets. I've seen dads chase after their boys deep into the ocean on an apparent mission to sprint to the other side. I've seen moms apologizing to the confused elderly couple next to them with a half of a sand castle kicked into their sun-scorched faces as a little girl runs off screaming with joy. Then there are the kids who are perfectly content just sitting there crying, screaming at the top of their little lungs for such an extended period of time it's almost admirable. This is the way it used to be, that is.
Now there's something available that I like to call "The Beach Babysitter." It's a Godsend for parents and grandparents and hours of pure joy for the kids. It's not just a dream and it's not magic; it's TidalBall, the new beach game that keeps people of all ages entertained all day at the beach. TidalBall keeps the kids happy, behaving, and stationary. This allows mom and dad to escape to a rare, blissful feeling of freedom they may not have experienced in the last ten or so years. It's a cool walk down memory lane when they could actually take the time to finish an entire drink while enjoying the sunshine and serenity of the beach. The kids are getting along with each other and even making new friends; all through a simple yet incredibly fun beach game. See more for yourself at www.TidalBall.com, because you deserve a peaceful day at the beach and a vacation from Dora the Explorer and Caillou the Talking Potato Monster.
