My kids and I went out this morning and bought my fishing license, a new fishing pole, and some tackle. We stopped at the bait shop to buy some worms and find out how to tie a hook on the line. We also inquired about the best places to go fishing with kids.
Turns out, there is a lake in the middle of our public park where children 14 and under can fish. So, we went there.
Within an hour or so, each one of my kids had caught 1 bluegill and 1 catfish.
We went home for lunch, and my daughter (the 5 year old) left to go to a birthday party.
My little boy, who is 2, finished all of his lunch, got up from his chair, and yelled, "ME GO MORE FISH, NOW!"
How could I resist? So, I took him out fishing again. Within another hour, he had caught 5 more catfish and 1 more bluegill. That was 8 total for him today. Pretty good for a 2 year old.
We got home, and I said, "You caught 8 fish today!" He replied, "Whoa!"
Then, I asked him, "How many fish did you catch today?" He puffed out his chest, and declared, "TEN!"
