Yes- I caved on the whole "we need another pet" thing, and got all children a fish. It was a huge moment of weakness (or moments of weakness), brought about by Emily winning a fish at the school carnival. Instantly everyone was fighting over "Molly" or "Nugget" or "Daisy" (or WHATEVER she finally decided on). The other three children were not able to *go* to the carnival due to other sport committments, and they all claim they definitely would have won a fish also. Rob was sick all weekend, and I just couldn't listen to the cries of despair any longer.
Yes- I totally gave in. And, now we have four fish.....Shoot me now!
