In my little world "I am Queen"

I did it, my LM finally broke his momma down and a pet as been brought home. I swore I would never ever own a pet just because I don't have time to take care of anything other than myself and of course my precious little man.

After weeks of begging and crying I caved picking him up from school on Friday and said - "Guess what?" "We're going to get you a fish." You would have thought that I told him he could have all the candy he wanted for dinner and more.

We drove over to the local pet store and I let him pick out a Betta. I chose the Betta Fish because they can live in a vase, eat off of a plant and are extremely low maintenance which is right up my alley. My opinion is, no maintenance would even be better. I had to tell myself this is all about LM and his wants.

We named the fish Oliver, as he has a fish at his dad's named Sharky. He'll tell you that the baby one died but the dad lived. It's quite a sad story when he's telling it as LM is so intense about telling you the story and not to forget - Santa brought them.

Oliver is a flourish of color. He's a dark blueish; pinkish; silver color and quite adorable. However, LM thinks he needs to tap on the glass and watch him every few minutes. He especially loves twisting the vase around in circles making poor Oliver quite dizzy. I just hope fish don't throw up. That would not be a pretty site in the vase.

If Oliver isn't swimming and just hanging out LM thinks he's dead and runs into the living room shouting, "Mom, Oliver died." I then need to explain, "He's not dead, just resting."

LM is quite the mother hen with his fish, most adorable to watch.

Pictures to follow - It was a mad rush to get out of the house this morning. I forgot my camera to do the download.

Ah, welcome snowy/icy Monday - I think...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you liked it. I love this story. Betta's are really beautiful, I had one, but they don't live very long (a couple of years if you're lucky). N

If I can get a few months I'll be happy. A friend has one on his desk and it's been there forever and he rarely cleans the bowl he's in. EWWW gross.
