Naptime with Jaws

Sharks, sharks, and more sharks!

That is what our house is all about these days with the almost three-year-old male.

So different from the princess phase that grew tiresome with Big Sister, but I'd now welcome. We checked out a book on sharks from the library, and that's all we've looked at since.  The images of shark teeth and the fin sticking out of the water, รก la Jaws, are cool to him but haunting to me.

I have a distinct childhood memory of hiding behind my Dad's recliner in the den, peeking at the Jaws movie on tv, when I was supposed to be in bed.

Scarred me for life.  I never went in the ocean more than knee-deep again.

And now I have a shark enthusiast, so I guess I'll just have to get over it.

But I'm still not getting in that ocean.


I always find Jaws to be comforting at naptime, don't you?

  1. My oldest is a HUGE animal lover. He's a voracious reader and knows probably too much about sea creatures, sea life, what's in the ocean. He won't step foot. I'm hoping for a change of heart thought when we go on this year's vacation. I'd like to see him at least put his toes in there! Isn't it fun (and funny) to see what interests our kids take up? :)

    1. It is so interesting to see their little personalities and preferences develop!

  2. He's so precious I am dying with that little face! Jaws sounds better than princess to me right now.

    1. Aw, thanks. I know, the princess stuff can get pretty obnoxious when you're in the thick of it.

  3. I was scared and enjoyed watching jaws. I remember our beach visits always curtailed us playing shark attack! The theme tune is still stuck in my head. However, I don't think.I will ever let me kids watch it means

  4. Heehee! It's so interesting to me to see what each kid becomes obsessed with. With the oldest, it was pirates, and trains. The girls are all about princesses, and kitties. The youngest talks about tractors all day long. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason, does there?!

    1. No, there doesn't! I often wonder what goes on in their little brains...

  5. Oh, that picture is too funny! I'm with you - between watching Jaws and growing up in FL constantly hearing about shark attacks on the news, I'm not a fan.

    1. I am hoping this phase passes quickly, but it's not looking good :)

  6. Yikes, I really hate Jaws and everything having to do with sharks. I was similarly scarred for life, and now I can't go into any water that I can't see through.

    1. I'm with you, I won't even swim in the lake b/c I can't see the bottom. Crazy.
