Trip got a very special surprise for F week. We have been talking about getting him a fish for months now, but have never made it to the pet store when we have been in a larger town. Daddy had to drive the 100 miles to the nearest town that has a pet store on some other business, and he decided to make the extra stop to get Trip a fish. Fish arrived home after Trip was in bed, so the next morning, he was waiting on the table when Trip sat down to eat breakfast.
Trip has enjoyed having Fish next to his place at the table. He especially likes to feed him his fish food each morning. So far, he has been kind enough not to share any of his food, utensils, crayons, playdough, or flubber with Fish.
