Daddy’s Gonna Take You Fishing One Day

20 April, 2013

Don’t cry Darcy it’s ok,
Daddy’s gonna take you fishing one day.

Pack up the boat and head to the Bay,
It’s only 3 1/2 hours away.

Crank up the Yahmie and troll all day,
We might even invite the dolphins to play.

Don’t cry Darcy it’s ok,
Daddy’s gonna take you fishing one day

I have heard Mr MMM sing this song to Lil D for almost 2 years now, when he is screaming with reflux. The words have never changed and he just calmly keeps singing it over and over until the pains subside.

These days Lil D almost knows the entire song and we sometimes hear him singing it to himself.

Funny thing was that until this afternoon Lil D had never been on the boat other than in our backyard. We have had so many false starts to getting out on the water that we held no hope of getting him out for a few hours today.

But we did.

He happily suited up in his life jacket and climbed aboard, yelling out Eye Eye Captain as he sat down.

We were worried the engine may frighten him but it didn’t and we did a beautiful 6 knots around Gateakers Bay with the happiest boy on the planet.

He yelled out to the fish … GET ON OUR LINE. Was more of a demand than an instruction. Extremely cute.

Then midst all the excitement … He fell asleep. I have never ever seen him do that. All squished up in his life jacket he was completely out for the zzz’s.

The sun began to set so it was time to head home. No fish on our lines. Well maybe I caught one but that was nothing to write home about 😉 .

I am so glad Lil D had his little dream come true today, on HIS boat as he likes to call it. So glad it happened at my favourite spot in the whole world too.
