15/52 – Firsts
I returned home from my conference today, excited to meet the newest addition to our family. Dorothy. Isn’t he awesome? It’s the very first pet of the Doodle’s choosing.
Like all good Elmo-addicted toddlers, the Doodle wanted a Dorothy of her very own. The name Dorothy was picked out even before she went to the pet store. It didn’t really matter that Dorothy was a boy fish. I love that toddlers don’t care about names to match the sex of their pets (I was going to write gender, but can a fish really have a gender). The only reason we know that Dorothy is a boy is because it said so on the plastic container. I don’t have any capability to magically determine the sex of a fish.
Here’s Doodle and Mama introducing Nana and Papa to him on skype and other assorted fishie pics.
