The Aquarium

"See hishies?" says Bear.


This makes me smile all over myself. Bear brings his puppy and his turtle and now his dinosaur and holds them up to see our new fishies.



Shark Boy, so called here because of a deep and abiding love of sea life, was busily setting up his new aquarium while I was at Blissdom last weekend.



Shark and Bear love the fish. They pull up chairs in the kitchen and watch them.

This evening, Shark said to me, "The fish are doing great. I'm feeding them just the right amount. Know how I can tell? "

"How?" I asked.

"They aren't dead," he replied.

That is too cute. My girls love love fishies too. Miss C has a Betta in her room (her second one...uh the first one expired.)

Fish tanks are a lot of work. We had one growing up. I'm sticking with dogs, for now.

Our friends in Aruba have a pretty cool fish tank and their little ones were devastated when all the fish died the week we were there. Something to do with the water pH.

Ashlie - Bite your tongue woman.

Husband has test strips for the ph and seems to know what he's doing.

Shark knows they might die. We've discussed their tendency to be short-lived, and he seems prepared to flush and head to the store for replacements.

(OMG)

Annnnnd... THEN we grilled them up and had a delicious fish dinner.

No?

What can I say? I'm a cat person.

*lol* at your son's comment about how he can tell the fish are doing great!

Sadly we have already learned the hard way that we MUST be a fish-free house.

We weren't even out of the house for FIVE MINUTES last summer when Griffy or Gracie, we still don't know WHICH one, had themselves a filet 'o fish snack!

LMAO! I just saw Beej's comment. Yeah, that's what my cats were thinking too!

Aww. I bet the boys love it. And, is Shark a realist, or what!

Love the aquarium -- how cute is the bear? We just got a slew of new fish today (see: cycle of life) and T. talked the daddy into all kinds of fabulous decorations. Now if we could just train the kids to clean the tank.....
