Birthday Confessions of Dead Fish

Today is S3's birthday. He turned six. I'll post pictures later of the big day. But here is the awful truth of the day I just don't want him to know.....

I killed his fish.

He didn't even know he HAD a fish. But he did. A pretty one, all set to live in his new fish tank we got him for his birthday. I only had to keep it alive from Sunday afternoon to Wednesday evening. And it didn't make it to Tuesday.

How pitiful was that?

So I gave him a fishbowl with no fishy in it today and he was thrilled. THRILLED. "This is my bestest birthday present EVER!" he declared.

Woulda been better with a fish in there, buddy.

So I thought I'd blog to confess since I am staring at the fishbowl. The very empty fishbowl right now........

O.k. I'm laughing just a little bit. I thought I was the only one who can't keep a fish alive. Although, my sister gave my one son a fish last summer and it's still alive. I think it's a miracle fish. Happy birthday to S3! My son Wyatt has a birthday this week too...on the 26th. He turns 7.

Oh dear...I know you were hoping that you could keep it alive but I didn't really think it would die...most fish don't die when you want them to!
OH well...there are other fish in the... AT the store.

Fish are the most unreliable of pets. The ones you want to live, die when you move too quickly next to the tank. The ones you really wish WOULD die, live heartily, despite lack of food, oxygen or light. On purpose.

Maggie wants a bird. Desperately. And her birthday is coming up! But after reading your post, I think we're going to go with roller skates....
