The Newest Member of the Family
Ha! No, not another baby- I wish! AudioDad is still "thinking about it". Instead, I've been thinking about pets. I was so tempted after Munch was born to get another dog from the shelter- but with two handfuls already, I think that was just crazed, sleep-deprived, post-partum madness. But now, Munch is ready to take on some of the responsibilities of taking care of pets. She feeds the girls, gives them love and hugs, and our favorite- lets them out on those early weekend mornings when we just want to sleep a little longer! At times though, I do see her thinking about the pet situation- Ginger is really Daddy's dog, Cricket is definitely mine. Who exactly is all her own? Meet Sari-I've been hearing so much about bettas and decided it would make a good first pet for Munch. We talked about how she'd take care of it- "I'll give it lots of kisses," she said at first. After I explained the whole bit about the water and the tank, she tried, "Can I give my fish lots of hugs?" Not so much. At least she's quite happy to feed Sari and we sit by the aquarium and spend lots of time talking to him. He seems to like that.
