Then, Daddy rented a small boat. You know? Those yellow ones that you blow up with air. Some people call them life rafts. It was big enough for all three of them. When Daddy put the boat on the shore Mom led the little boy to the boat.
When Mommy caught up to him, he was sitting on their beach blanket under their beach umbrella. "Don't you want to go for a boat ride?"
"It's too scarey!"
"But, the water is very smooth and peaceful"
By this time Daddy had pulled the boat to where they were sitting. "What's the matter son?"
The little boy pointed out to sea and said in his biggest voice:
Now, that's not the end of the story, yet.
Years later when the boy had become a man, another little boy watched the movie, "Jaws". This little boy liked the movie so much that he wanted to watch it again and again. Good thing his Mommy and Daddy could buy the DVD.
This little boy collected shark toys, and shark books and drew pictures of sharks. When his Mommy and Daddy took him to the beach he stood on the shore gazing out to sea.
"Are there any sharks out there?"
"No, but they will migrate in a few months. Then they will be out there."
"Then, can we to go out in a boat and see them?"
Tomorrow is the little boy's birthday and the first Mommy is his Grandmother. She made a blog for him with all shark pictures. You can see them here
This is all a true story
