Life with a five year old....holy cow I can't believe he's five....has been humorous so far. Recent conversations have included statements like "but I'm 5 now mom, I'm practically a growed-up" "being 5 is kinda fun but it's really hard" "I'm not sure I'm ready to be 5 yet mommy, they have lots of rules and stuff...."
Earlier this week we had pre-K graduation, it was an amazing spectacle, there was singing, dancing, the pledge of allegiance...a 4 year old announcing her undying love for my son.....apparently he's a bit of a ladies man, my boy...I'm curious to see if they can tough it out after the school year starts and the Connor heads off to the big kid school and the younger girl has to stay at pre-K and they only get to see each other at the end of the day for a brief few moments.... Ah, young love, sweet love. At least this one isn't asking him to take his pants off. At least his taste seems to be improving. (and she is adorable with her 4 year old self)
So, I'm contemplating a fish...the boy has wanted a fish for a while. I need a fish that is indestructible and will never die because he will get seriously attached and there will be many many tears if we have to have a burial at sea anytime soon... So any thoughts on fish longevity? Should I go with the good old fashioned gold fish or is there something better?
