We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

He got knocked down but got up again! Wordless Wednesday

Getting this close to the water is a big deal for my boy - he didn't want to even come to the beach!

Oh crap, another wave was coming in close behind so it became a bigger one than he expected!!!

Oh crap, another wave was coming in close behind this one so it became a lot bigger than I, and he, expected!!!

This is such a great action shot, if I do say so myself, so had to zoom in to show you him getting air!

Getting SMASHED by a wave! I promise I ran over to see how he was as soon as I took this photo!

I was convinced he would scream his head off and run away but this is him, minutes after - reading to face the waves - a proud mumma I was!

I was convinced he would scream his head off and run away but this is him, minutes after – ready to face the waves again. I was so proud.

And you can imagine my shock when he ran back into the ocean after just being knocked over by it - that's my boy x

The ocean is a powerful thing and it should be respected.

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. I love this! Such great shots!

  2. What a brave little man!! Glad to see he had so much fun. Awesome pics Em! So looking forward to heading up for some Queensland sunshine next week!! Can’t wait to get my little girl to the beach for the first time!! 🙂

  3. What an amazing memory! I love the action shot. My three year old is scared of the waves, but we hope to break through that this spring/summer. I was such a little beach babe when I was her age 🙂

  4. I can just imagine how proud and excited you were for him when he went back in! X

  5. Way to go H!! Very happy for him, but you’re in big trouble fi I’m singing chumbawumba all week!!!

  6. Darling, that’s awesome. Looks like he’s getting his confidence back x

  7. Sensational!! What part of QLD are you in? I am hoping to holiday there soon.

  8. OH! That action shot is ACE! What a great moment to watch him pick himself up and go again. Love a little resilience building! X

  9. Nothing beats jumping through the waves 🙂

  10. He sounds so much like my Mr 19, who to this day says he “hates the beach” … but when we’ve dragged him there he always has a good time. He doesn’t like the sand. I’m beginning to wonder if he has some Aspie tendencies …

    Great pix!

  11. What a legend! I was apparently terrified of the surf as a kid, but doesn’t it just feel amazing when you are out in it!? Love the actions shots Em!

  12. Such a brave big boy, woohoo!! Fabulous shots Em xx
    PS. thanks again for holding the fort over at my “house” yesterday 😉

  13. Fantastic pics…all three of my kids went through a stage where they were scared of the sand and/or waves. I understood the wave fear but not the sand :-). The beach is an awesome place for kids (and grown-ups). I’ve got to stop being lazy and get back down there. Glad to see your little cutie having a great time :-).

    • I’m so glad to hear that my son isn’t the only one, he’s been exposed from a young age, but not a fan of water – he even hates our pool! But baby steps right? We might get there – thanks for visit and sharing Lynda 🙂

  14. Woohoo! I’ll be doing the same in about a month when the water is a bit warmer. I’ll have to show my poppet this, learn how to get back on the horse so to speak. What a little champion x

  15. gosh they are such great shots – and he is so very brave!! Love his courage of going back for another wave even though he got knocked down 🙂

  16. Yay for him. I love when kids realse something they are scared of can be fun. Great action shot by you!!

  17. Great pictures! It looks like he enjoyed the waves and the water at the end!

  18. Beautiful photos, exquisite sequence to the waves!

  19. Isn’t that great to see – that confidence building! Our son Hayden last Summer ended up so much braver than he had before – but now I have to be ready to get wet when he ends up upside down.

  20. Good on him, I can imagine this must have made you feel so happy to see. I hope this makes him excited to go back to the beach again.

  21. We’ve had a great start to Spring & perfect beach weather. Looks like he had fun. Thanks for the earworm (Tubthumping). 😉

  22. He is a little champ.
    I can’t wait to get to a beach

  23. So loving this warmer weather. Can’t wait to hit the beach. Great pics love. xo

  24. Great shots, Em! My boys love jumping and chasing the waves too and you’re right – it’s a great way to teach them how to respect the ocean. 4 sleeps till I see you! x

  25. he looks like he is having a lot of fun. wish l was there

  26. Well done you on letting him get knocked down. It’s easier to hold their hand, but they are all the stronger for being allowed to make their own little mistakes.
