A Fishy Fairytale

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful little girl who wanted a pet of her own. Her mama and daddy said no...so she bought some seeds. She planted the seeds and watered them and cared for them until they sprouted. She faithfully tended her plant. She checked it daily to see if it was thirsty. If it felt dry, she talked to it as she fed it "lunch." When her family went on vacation, they closed all the window shades, but the beautiful little girl kept the shade on the plant's window open so it would continue to receive sunlight while she was gone.

One day, though she still loved her plants, the beautiful little girl longed for more. She asked for a pet again. Her mama and daddy said no...so she caught a beetle. She put it in a jar with a wet sponge to ease its thirst. Her mama warned her that it would not be happy in a jar. Her daddy told her it needed to go...so she sobbed as she set it free. Her daddy held her as she cried and his heart was softened.

On the weekend, the beautiful little girl went with her mama and daddy to buy a fish. She named it Nemo. Her charming brothers came along, and they bought fish, too. Her charming older brother named his fish Christopher Robin and her charming younger brother named his Donut. Three fish now swim in a bowl and the beautiful little girl is content.

And they all lived happily ever after (we hope).


The End

  3. At least it's your daughter who wants the pets. Tim's been talking about chickens, goats, and even a miniature horse :)
