For many years now, the kids have been talking about getting a pet: hamster, cat, dog, squirrel, possum, lizard, anything... Well, it turns out that our son was allergic to the most common household pets, cats and dogs, and I was not going to allow any of the others across my threshold.
Until our daughter showed up from school with this: TADAH!!!
Meet our new pet fish. Apparently, she won them in the school raffle. She left home with a list of people she needed to get gift for at the Christmas Bazaar and $10, and she came back with FISH.
From what I can deduce, she bought me earring for $1, and them sunk the rest of the money into the raffle. There is a silver lining somewhere in there, right?
