Who would've thought that my blog post about Jalen wanting a pet would've caused so much controversy! Jay was so excited to point out to me that most of the comments were saying that he should get a pet. When I would show him the few that said not to, he would change the subject and pretend he wasn't listening :)
I had been telling him he could have a fish for a while and told him that we would buy him a bowl and everything he needed, if he saved up for the fish. He was so excited yesterday when I came home and surprised him with a fish bowl. Straight away he went out with Aaron to the pet shop and chose three fish that he wanted. He chose three different cold water fish and has named them 'Mr Bubbles', 'Tiger' and 'Slick'.
He is so excited about them and just sits and looks at them all the time, and comes out and tells me what they are doing. Kobe keeps knocking on his door saying 'me say 'hi' fish Jay!' and then goes in and looks in the bowl and says 'Hi Bubbles, Hi Tiger, Hi slick!'.
It's cute seeing how excited they are and I'm quite happy with the fish, and have told them that it now means they have pets and can stop complaining :) I wonder how long I can hold them off asking me for something stinky and furry!? I'm waiting for the first drama when one starts floating to the top, or when Kobe decides to go fishing, but fingers crossed these fish will live long happy lives in the King house.
