I’m facing a huge parenting conundrum.
Baby Boy’s fish died and I’m not sure what to do.
Do I tell him?
Do I sneak in a replacement?
Do I let him discover it on his own?
Do I ignore it and pretend he won’t notice? (Let’s be honest, he’s 7 and it’s a fish he forgets to feed, so he might not. However his sister’s fish, who she also forgets to feed, is still roaring away, so…)
I know, I know, it’s the whole circle of life thing, but still. It’s one of those traumatic moments for a parent. When I went to feed them this morning, fish not kids, it was a wee bit gut wrenching. That fish and I have been through a lot. Like me cursing while cleaning his tank.
But I digress.
Have you gone through this?
What did you do?
