Last week, Mikayla started asking if we could get a bird as a pet. She was pretty persistent. Thankfully, I was able to redirect her into wanting some fish instead. So, last Thursday, we all went to WalMart and picked out three little fish. Mikayla has named them Mommy, Daddy and Nathan. She was SO excited when she got them. We called both grandmas on the way home. She was so happy, that she could hardly speak. She kept stuttering and tripping over her words. She is very good about remembering to feed them and she likes to sit in front of the tank and talk with her pets. She also gave them some stuffed animals to sleep with their first night in her room. She picked out some sea animals to put next to their tank so they wouldn’t be afraid or lonely. Such a thoughtful little girl! This is a picture of Mommy and Daddy. I wasn’t able to get a picture of them all together.
The very proud new fish owner.
