Tuesdays With Tyler: One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Grant grew up with fish and little frogs all of his life so last week, Tyler for the first time got to pick out pets of his own.  Deciding on Betta fish due to their reputation for heartiness, Grant took Tyler to the pet store and Tyler chose a red Betta and a blue Betta.  As pets go, fish are relatively easy on the budget and we got a really neat fish tank which gives the illusion that the fish are together but are acutally split.  Male Bettas are known to fight.


It’s a nice way for Tyler to develop a sense of responsibility and caring for animals.  With Grant or I, he feeds them twice a day and says Good morning, How was your day, and Goodnight to them.


As for their names?  I reminded Tyler of the beloved Dr. Seuss book and said that Red Fish and Blue Fish are perfectly good names!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
