Sweet...I remember you and I both had our first kids around the same time. Amazing how quickly they grow.

I took my 1.5 year old out on the boat for the first time this weekend - everything I imagined might happen happened within 20 minutes... he threw my pliers into the water, he fell backwards overboard into the drink and I had to haul him out sputtering and change him into dry clothes, then he melted down screaming "ma ma ma ma" as he'd missed his nap. He fell asleep in my lap running at speed back to the launch.

I re-learned a valuable lesson - "1 is none, 2 is 1, have 3 of everything"... once he was into his spare set of clothes, there were no longer any spare dry clothes!! When the gunnel is 3" from the deck they fall out pretty easy if they trip or stumble. Sorta figured it would happen, which is why I was out on a warm day with 70 degree water.

Will probably wait a year before I attempt that totally ruined my fishing! hahaha His sister was much more boat friendly at his age.
