"Fish are Friends... Not Food"~



We got our first FISH AQUARIUM!

Funny story really...
(grandma-'My-Hope' I hope you laugh when you read this! ha ha)
Sooo, anyway...Hayden spent the night with grandma Friday night!
When I went to pick up my baby boy the next day guess what
Grandma had bought for babyboy to take home~
You guessed it...two brand new fish!!!
Well baby boy, Hayden had asked mommy a few weeks ago about buying
some fish to take home to our house...begged really, but thats not important! ;-)
Of course Mommy said, 'No' since we already have too many kitty-cat pets
to take of and Mommy doesnt have the patience for more animals/living things
in her life right now...but I didnt explain that to him~
I just told him that our kittys would try to eat the fish, so we couldnt have any
hoping that would suffice any arguement.
I did tell him to ask grandma to buy an aquarium for her house
and then they could have fishys over grandmas house!
(Thinking I was slick, I could pass the buck to grandma
or ELSE he would just forget about the fish idea altogether!)

Ohhh NOOO~~ He did not forget...



...Grandma heard baby boys pleas for a fish and answered his spoiled little wishes!

Except one major thing~ she bought him a little carrier to take the fish
home to HIS house and not keep them at Grandmas house!!!
(UGH!)
Well, the carrier thingy had a leak in it so we had to transport the
fish in a tupperware bowl back to my house...
(yes I got water on the floor of my car as I drove, dont even ask!!)
;-P
But when I got the fish home I didnt have time to run to Wally-World to get them
a proper home fish bowl to live in so they had to sleep overnight in a tupperware bowl~
I did feel bad, but I was also stressed about now having new things to take care of!!
UGH UGH!
Soo baby boy Hayden named his fish~ "Hayden"
I know just a little egotistical huh! hee
The other fish was for baby girl, Lyza and
she named her fish....
"PINK"
What else would she have named it, I mean come on!!
(you gotta know her and the inside joke of her PINK addiction though)
So we were the proud new parents of "Hayden" the fish and "Pink" the fish!
(But not for long)
I woke up the next morning to find baby boy looking at the fish in the bowl...
Hayden looked at me and the face read guilty all over it!!
I ran to look inside the bowl and found poor little Hayden fishy swimming lonesome
and half freaked out with panic attack written all over his face...
I turned to my baby boy and said, Hayden where is PINK the fish?
He looked at me with sad eyes and kinda gave me the I dont know shoulder shrug...
Again I repeat, HAYDEN WHERE IS PINK?!!
Sooo, Hayden my precious but wild child son begins to point to the kitchen sink
as he tells me 'Pink went down the sink' mommy!
UGH!
Soo, I shove my hand down our kitchen sink and frantically begin to feel for any signs of life...
I feel something mushy...ugh
So I pull it up...
it was only water logged bread...ewwww!
I feel again and again but no fishy...
Pink the fish somehow made it past the garbage disposal
and down the drain to his new home, lets just hope he made it back to the sea like NEMO did!
(I'm sticking to that for my conscience sake)
Soo now that PINK left us in the SINK
we just had poor little Hayden fishy freaked out by himself in the bowl.
I was bound and determined from that moment on I would protect and take care of
this lone little fish if it was my last thing to do on earth... UGH!
That meant that poor Hayden fishy could not live in a bowl if he was to survive!
Sooo....
Mommy (myself) travels to the Pet store today to get Hayden fishy new living
accommodations and maybe a new friend since he was mourning his loss of PINK!
Well, Mommy ends up dropping almost one whole $BENJAMIN$ at the Pet store!!
Oh my gosh...for a $.38 cent fish named~ Hayden!!
I mean Hayden fishy needed a home...so Hayden fishy got a new home...
A FISH MANSION IN BEVERLY HILLS is what he got!!
Plus Hayden fishy needed a new girlfriend...
soo we got a new fishy for $.25 cents which baby girl-'Lyza Jane named, "PURPLE"!
(hee hee ;-) she cracks me up!)
Soo, now we have our very first fish and fish aquarium in our house!!
Yeah for me!!
UGH

Soo I'd like to introduce you to our newest family members~
Hayden the Fishy (the orange goldfish)
and
Purple the Fishy (the white goldfish)
They seem to like their new MANSION home very much
and each other as well swimming everywhere together!

Ohhh and we JUST HAD TO BUY the $8.00
"SPONGEBOB PINEAPPLE HOUSE"
as well for our spoiled little fishy friends~ GEEZ!
Sooo now I'm called an 'AQUARIUMIST'
and this is my new hobby thrust onto my lap...
I will let you know how my new adventure pans out with
this whole 'AQUARIUMIST' title I have now.

The kids DO seem to like their new fishy friends...So for now it
worked out just fine and everyone is overall happy!


AND
As long as my baby girl, Lyza Jane doesnt turn into DARLA from the movie Finding Nemo~
and taps the glass repeatedly saying "Fishy, Fishy, Fishy!"

"FIND A HAPPY PLACE! FIND A HAPPY PLACE!!"



I have ONLY 1 goal and 1 goal only!!
That is...
TO NOT KILL THE FISH!!!!
(UGH)


Ohh and for my tank to look as close to Nemos Aquarium in the future as possible!
It looks like a pretty place to live! ;-)

To be continued...

Such a great post! The fishy's new home looks like paradise and I love the movie Finding Nemo, so it was fun to see that your goal is to make the tank look like theirs. Too cute!

I'm a little late in coming to say thank you for stopping by my blog last Monday and commenting on the tulip field pictures. It was fun to "see" a new face and I do hope you come back again to take a peek. I love the title of your blog!
