Not Quite a Fisherwoman

The temperature was right and the water was calm. There was a crowd of people and we had found the perfect spot amongst them for our morning at the fishing derby. We were with friends which made it equally as exciting and our daughter was pumped.

Worms on the line, fishing pole set, Dad in position, and cast.


And then 15 minutes later she was over it.

She had heard while we were in line for registration that there was face painting and that was where her heart led her.

Her father has tried endlessly to get her interested in his sport of choice but our daughter isn’t as interested as he would like her to be. She’s a girly girl. Her passion is glitter, balloons, face paint, and anything frilly. She would cover herself in make-up, fake nails, and princess dresses if we let her.

So when we passed the face painting station a piece of her stayed there.

It was time to go back and collect.


That coupled with the balloon animals and she had the best day ever!


Walks on the trail meeting ducks and dogs, running through the woods with her dad, and Slushies to cool down… bring it on.


This girl knows what she likes and unfortunately it isn’t slimy worms.

Not today anyway.

    I love that you didn’t force her to stick it out. Love that your day was focused on her- what she wanted. So many parents there yelled at their kids to keep trying, focus and be patient. Not you- which I admire. Child focused and allowing her to make the choice 🙂 xoxo
