Something Smells Fishy Around Here

My almost three-year-old decided our fish needed to be fed … So, with that in mind, he dumped two *entire* containers of food into their tank this morning! Oy! Hopefully, the little guppies will survive. Where was I when this was all happening? Well, I was still trying to clean up the mango smoothie that had been thrown all over our upstairs carpet. These kiddos are keeping me on my toes!

    When my 10 year old was about 3 we had a huge fish tank and had just purchased a bunch of fish for it as a gift. I was in the rooms cleaning up toys while he was watching them and drinking his Sierra Mist. When I came back in he no longer had a Sierra Mist and the fish were all dead with swollen bellies. One of the fish in the tank was one that my Mother had given him to take care of when she moved out of state. “Steve” was also dead….turns out he dumped the can of soda into the tank. When I asked him why (expecting something along the lines of “I wanted to give them a drink”) the answer that I got was “I dunno”. I had to spend the entire day emptying the tank, cleaning it and refilling it in hopes of saving the two surviving fish, and find a way to tell my then-husband that all of his Father’s Day gifts were dead….

    Just went through this ordeal this morning, awoken to find that the fish were having breakfast at the same time as my 3 year old, and entire container
