My hubby told me he needed to redeem himself and was taking Meg fishing. Apparently determined to catch a fish or two because I blogged about a comment Meg made where she said all they ever catch is seaweed.
So he decided to take her fishing this past Saturday In the OCEAN!!! When I say in the ocean… I mean IN the ocean.
Yep, see that tiny pink blip in the middle of all that blue? That’s my Meggers!! Can I just say when I first saw this picture I said…
“What the… ARE YOU CRAZY?!”
Now let me explain, I wasn’t upset that Meggers was out there in the water, being brave, I was quite proud of her for that. I was more concerned because she’s still learning how to swim. So after opening a can of woop ass on my husband talking about it, we agreed next time he took Meg fishing in the ocean she’d be wearing a life jacket. I’m all for fishing and boosting her self confidence but precautions still need to be made mister!
Meg, as always, reassured me with a thumbs up that she was doing just fine.
Meg told me how she helped daddy get the shrimp out and put them on the hook.
Meg: “We put the hook through it’s butt mom”
Me: Totally disgusted look “Really?! That’s good Meg, were they wiggly?”
Meg: “YEAH daddy let some get away.”
Hubby: Changing the subject “We caught a Pin fish and a small spotted trout”
Me: “Did you get a picture of them?”
Hubby: pause “No I wasn’t going to take my camera out in the ocean it’d get ruined.”
Me: “So there’s no real proof you caught anything? (insert snicker here).
Hubby: Rolls eyes “We caught two fish…”
Me: “Sure you did! And it was this (see pic below) big right?”
Hubby: “Whatever! Meghan’s my witness.”
Me: “That’s true! I guess she backs up your story, but pictures would’ve been better, I’m just sayin’…”
Hubby: Rolls eyes “I’m getting a water proof camera so I can take pictures next time.”
Me: Mission complete! “Okay!”
Hubby: “Meg shall we tell mommy what else we saw?”
Hubby: “Meg what did they catch a couple of houses away?”
Meg: “Mommy Guess what??”
Meg: “They caught a baby shark!”
