Speaking of adding to our family, a few weeks ago we added something to our home that both my husband and I swore we would never allow in the house. Yes, we got a pet. I use the term "pet" loosely because I realize most people consider a betta fish to be something closer to a houseplant than and actual house animal, but for my little man this little red fish has become his new best friend. Seriously. Ever since Dory Shark Anderson* (full name given by my boy) entered our home my little man has been mildly obsessed with his existence. He wakes up every morning asking, "can we feed Dory yet?" and I will often come upstairs to find him on the counter talking to him trough the glass (err plastic.) I realize that if we had gotten a dog instead his mind would actually be blown, but our toe is officially in the water, and maybe down the road we will consider getting a pet that is a little more, how should I say, interactive? For now this little fishy is our baby step.
* I'm pretty sure we may have watched Finding Nemo one to many times.
