The documentings of Brad, Yvette, Brody, and Milo... this is how we do it

Two weeks ago for Family Home Evening we decided to get Brody a pet fish. Now no offense to you fish lovers and owners out there, but I don't like fish. I think they stink and are gross and I only like them in a frying pan or on top of a bed of rice! I really didn't want to get him one because I knew I would have to take care of them, and the thought of cleaning out a fish bowl grosses me out. Brad wanted to get an actual aquarium with a filter so I didn't have to worry about that, but 1. I have no place for an aquarium and 2. an aquarium is more permanent and I didn't want to replace any dead fish, the faster they die the faster I can put the bowl away for good. Anyway we ended up getting three fish and Brody thought they were pretty cool. He likes to watch me feed them what he calls cereal, but smells like fish booty. So far two of the three have lasted. A couple days later one died and I had to clean out the bowl (gross) and flush him to fishy heaven! I wasn't even thinking while I was doing this bc Brody was in the bath and he watched me dump the fish and dirty water down the toilet and he stood up from his bath and said : "uh-oh mama, fish..., uh-oh, fish"...ooops... I hope when he grows up de doesn't turn out dysfunctional and blame it on watching me flush his fish down the toilet when he was 20 mos. old AGH!
P.S. I have to clean out the stupid bowl every day!!!!!! so don't get a fish bowl if you don't like fish ;)
