Aubrey, being her mother's child, and therefore an intense animal lover......now has a dog, a cat, and a tank full of fishes. The fishes came about when Darrin got a tank full of his own for xmas. Seems Aubrey missed them when she wasn't over playing with Darrin. lol The other day Aubrey let her parents sleep late instead of jumping on the bed to let them know she's awake. Nichole woke up some time later. Now the fish tank is positioned so that Nichole can see it as she walks out of her bedroom. And right off she noticed the tank was missing quite a few fish! So, Nichole questions Aubrey. Little chatter box is attempting to talk Mommy's arm off with long drawn out explanations as Mommy is rushing around searching for dead fish. Nichole discovers 3 fish in a bowl of water. Aubrey explains that they're a Mommy fish, a Daddy fish, and a "baby" fish and needed to be together. Next Nichole finds a couple in a cup of water. Those fishes were lonely, Aubrey explains and needed to be together. Nichole found cups and bowls of fish all over the living room with similar explanations from Aubrey. Some fish were "friends" and wanted to play together. Others were families, others were lonely. I think one was going to "work". Nichole was horrified that Aubrey had gotten up, managed to scoop the fish out of the tank (which is on their kitchen table) and deposit them into bowls and cups. And amazed that none of them seemed any worse for wear. Aubrey bawled while Mommy put them back into the tank while telling her they were already all "together" when they were in the tank. lmao Then Nichole dug out the lid for the tank and duct taped it on to protect the fish from Aubrey wanting to play with them. Kids. Gotta love 'em.
