First Pet Fish - Wordless Wednesday



Last weekend during The Mama’s 2013 Expo, one of the exhibitors gave out goldfish. I wasn't sure what we'd do with it or even if it would survive the trip back home. But it did!

First Pet Fish

My son was SO excited to have a pet and wanted to help me take care of it.

So we bought it a home and food. My son helped filled his tank with water, feed him and spent time talking to him. I was very proud how responsible my son was with his first pet fish.

What was your or your child's first pet?

Aww. It looks like he loves that little fish. My kids have been asking for a fish forever, I just cant give in. LOL!

A fish is a good way to teach kids responsibility and to take care of a pet.

Awww so sweet! My daughter got her first goldfish last summer, she won it at the carnival but the poor thing started growing some kind of mold looking stuff on its body about a week later. "Goldy Diamonds" is now swimming in the lake with her mama.

Fish are great - kids learn about caring for them...and then eventually how they die :( We had fish for awhile but just couldn't keep them alive for very long. Dogs, I can do. Fish...not so much.

My son adores fish! I think he'd love if we had some, but I really don't want to clean a fish tank. LOL

We got the kids beta fish. You have to make sure to remind them not to over feed the fish. It's just as bad as not feeding them at all!

Aww, how sweet! We had dogs when our son was born but the first pet he got of his own was a bird when he was 5. We still have him and the bird turned 13 this year!

My daughter got an aquarium for Christmas, with a Gourami, 3 Glofish and 3 snails. The fish are all still going strong, but the snails all croaked.

Fun! Does the fish have a name?

We had cats before we had kids, so I guess my boys' first pet was a cat!

Very cool! Goldfish make a nice pet. They are a little more maintenance than a Beta fish.

Awww! Fish make great first pets! CONGRATS!

Our first pet was a dog. Now we have a cat and lots of fish too, in fact we have too many pets!

Jennifer @ Mom Spotted said...

I'm so glad it all worked out! What a very odd thing to be given on a trip for sure!

How cute! My son's first pet was our dog, who was part of our family before he was!

My sons first pet was a goldfish as well. He was so proud, took great care. He actually surprised me when he took it upon himself to arrange Grandpa to watch & fed whenever we went away.

My DD has been asking for a pet goldfish, but we just haven't done it yet. I'm sure this will end up being her first pet eventually...
