Monday's Mommy Moment: Beware of the Shark!
In 2006, my husband bought a shark snapper toy on our honeymoon in Hawaii. (For those of you who are still unsure what it does, there's a lever at the end of the pole that makes the shark snap--a great device for tormenting unsuspected souls.) My husband, at the time, claimed he was buying the toy as a souvenir for his six year-old nephew, but as the snapping shark head often peaked around the shower curtain while I was rinsing my hair, I soon learned it was my husband's new toy.
He had fun tormenting me during the rest of our honeymoon, but I was smart. I knew where the shark toy was packed, and once I unpacked it, I hid it--in a secret place not to be disclosed--(just in case my nosy husband is reading this.) From this point forward, I now have control of the shark snapper, and from time to time, (usually once or twice a year) he will come out to pay my husband a visit in the shower. (Hey, my husband's the creative one...I'm just the copycat.)
This weekend, I surprised my husband by showing Lil' Lewie how to pull the lever and use the shark. Now, I wasn't the one bothering Daddy...instead, I had a partner in crime... Oh, and it was so much fun!
