We moved our boat from our winter slip to our gorgeous summer slip with a view. We were tying everything in place and Christina, who MUST help whenever possible, was holding the line for a bumper while daddy moved some dock lines around.
Out of the corner of my eye, I watched as Christina dropped the extra large bumper into the lake with a big splash. It was between the boat and the dock so no big panic.
While I continued what I was doing I called out to her and said that she shouldn't drop it in the lake because it might float away.
Suddenly I felt a comforting hand on my back and I heard her gently say,
"It's okay Mommy. We have more clean ones on the boat."
