Everyone Meet T-Bone!
T-Bone joined our family on Saturday, May 23rd 2009 approximately 12:15pm. It was a sunny day in neighborhood....I was heading out to buy $1 flip flops at Old Navy when I realized there was a 3 hour line to wait to buy FLIP-FLOPS! So, Joel, Jude and I decided to bypass Old Navy and head down to Petsmart.
Jude was fascinated...all the dogs leaving/entering the store...the aquarium section was enormous and exciting....the smell of gross animals...ahh...lovely! Well, Jude just turned 4 on 5.22 and we told him we thought he was old enough to care for a pet goldfish. He was beyond thrilled!
We took him home....let him come out on the patio with us to grill out and I have to be perfectly honest, we are really starting to ADORE this little guy! I am in awe at the love for T-Bone Jude has shown. Jude is displaying character traits we didn't even know were there yet....love, care, concern, responsibility, and joy in watching this fish grow. (Especially cuz I'm Puerto Rican and can't stop feeding it!)
So...meet our new little itty bitty Miller-fish. He's a precious little dude with a "tough" name...also-say a prayer that he lives for at least 6 months! :)
