As if there wasn't enought living things in this house...
Jason told Summer she could get a fish. We have done the goldfish thing about 10 times(seriously) and everyone knows how that turns out. But I keep hearing people say that Bettas live a lot longer. So here we go. Maybe he will be easier to secretly replace than a goldfish with a tiny black mustache. That didn't work out so well (who would expect a 3 yr old to notice? I told her it was dirt and finally washed off. She never did buy that story) Anyway, I don't see how its any ones fish but MINE since I feed it and I clean the smelly bowl. Nice of Jason to volunteer ME for it. So he needed a name. Due to the enormous amount of heartbreak that follows losing any type of pet in this house(we did lose 2 cats in 2 years) we try to find funny names that seem to somehow make it easier( like, a fish named "Floater" doesn't seem to require a funeral but "Little Sweetie" might)Which is why we allowed a 3 yr old Summer to name our current cat, Bling-Bling. I never guessed she would last this long.
So here is how everyones vote went:
Jenn-"Fillet" (Phil for short)
Summer-"Swimmie" Or "Finn"
Then I changed my vote to Kevin because it is AWESOME. Then Teagen began yelling "SUSHI!!" all around the house, so I think her vote changed. Poor Summer didn't know what to do. The next day Grandpa Mark suggested Roofus and she liked that a lot too. I was still rooting for Kevin when she finally decided on Finn. Which is funny because I really liked the name Finley for her when I was pregnant.
So Welcome Finn Dude. Hope Bling doesn't eat ya.
