The use of the word "pitch" in this cartoon is: to attempt to sell or win approval for; promote; advertise.

Thus, this cartoon is a sarcastic remark made by the mother because the father is spending more time working instead of spending time with his daughter.  Meaning, instead of the father working on ideas from work, his daughter has an idea about going to the beach that he should work on.

Perhaps the dad is screenwriter who has to "pitch" his own story ideas to studio executives.

If the father is a writer, #2 post is more appropriate for the explanation.
The mother thinks all work and no play makes him dull.
pitch v.=to give a particular feeling or expression to something said or written.
