Forget the husband..that is a permanent pet..
As the twins have gotten older pets have remained a fixture with the exception of 4 years that I lived in a townhouse and no pets were allowed other than fish or birds.
Speaking of fish...
Here is why I do not have fish now...other than the black molly that had a massive amount of babies that lead to a 55 gallon tank.
So here is the story...Sebastian and Zoe were 3. I was about two months away from moving in with my current husband Ken. I was on the phone talking to Ken, turned around and there were bubbles coming out of the filter. Sebastian had grabbed the dish soap and put it in the tank. I screamed...hung up on Ken...and Seb looked at me and said...but Mommy...the fish needed a bath! They were dirty!
Every fish was dead within a matter of minutes. The last to die was a goldfish and the only thing to survive was a crab.
Now we have two cats, a dog and two gerbils...and a kitten on the way...NO FISH....
