If it were only that easy. I kept thinking I could get to that point,
but life has a funny way of changing a persons plans. The 2 oldest boys
would be fine. I kept thinking the once youngest third would get to the
point where he would be safe on a boat, but it didn't work out that way.
He's autistic and would need constant supervision, which I could provide
except then we got number 4 who's now 9 months old (there will be no
more) and I can't deal with both of them and still be able to show the
older 2 how to fish, change their lures, handle a boat, and remove any
fish they may catch from the hooks. The "old man" won't watch the baby
for more than an hour or two and that's not enough time to fish. Sadly
by the time the baby's old enough the oldest will be all grown up and
out of the house. Guess I just need to find a good and helpful fishing
partner. :)
