The Perfect Pet for me . . .

I don't think it gets much better than a little fish from the store. I'll take one for each kid in seperate bags. And by the way my Max wants the one you can't catch, Alexander the one that jumps out of the net, Barrett the squirmy one, and Jacq the one and only pretty white gold fish left. All four children will pace the tank, stand in your way literally yelling at their fish while you try to fish them out. The guy at Walmart totally hates me. My little friends are so easily amuzed and distracted. Thank goodness they forgot about the dog I told them they could have after everyone was potty trained. BAD MOM! I guess I won't get the mom of the year award this year. Maybe in the spring. Made their week just the same with a fish name. . . Van dan long.. . Coolalaloo. . .? Yeah. . .I don't know where they get these names and honestly I don't care. . .they love their 4 fish for $0.40 and they watch them for hours.

I am totally not a pet person...I might be able to handle fish..but don't tell my kids that!

I am definately the same way, 2 fish is what we have and that is about all I can deal with right now even though the daughter and husband are dying for a puppy. Maybe someday...I love your new look on the blog, very cute! Of course I like your colors since Brown is my absolute favorite color so way to go! And cute pictures!

I am so with you! We did the fish thing for a while - but even the aquarium got to be too much... and when we moved... well, the fish didn't! Good luck.
