My Son, the Shark Expert

Sea Treatures

“I lining up my sea treatures.”

As you may remember, my son absolutely loves “sea treatures,” particularly sharks. In addition to an extensive collection of shark toys, he’s amassed quite a library of shark books, which he’s dutifully studied for months, resulting in a wealth of knowledge that continues to surprise my wife and me daily.

While reading him books before bed recently, we’ve noticed that he’s become quite the expert, which has prompted my wife to continually remind me:

“We NEED to get this on tape.”

As I’ve found over and over again, moments like these are fleeting, and while it seems like an everyday thing now, he could very well become obsessed with something else tomorrow and the Son Shark Show would be abruptly and tragically canceled. And so with this in mind, I sat down with him the other night, phone in hand, to document his aquatic expertise once and for all.

Here, for your viewing pleasure, is my son naming all of the sharks (and a few other treatures) in one of his very favorite books, Amazing Sharks and Sea Creatures, while his persistent daddy tries to keep him focused.

Unfortunately, my son has informed me that he will not be autographing any copies of this video. However, he is interested in any and all college scholarship offers that may stem from this publicity, so any such offers can be sent to yours truly, marked “ATTN: Treatures.”

    Autograph the video. That’s funny. And yes, it was a good idea to make a video. By the time he’s 8 he won’t care about sharks and have forgotten most of this information.
