On Father’s Day, I took Leia out to wet market for grocery shopping. The little girl spotted a fish shop and I decided to suprise hubby with the fishes chosen by dear daughter.
Besides a Hermes Tie, the fish tank is one of the Father’s Day gift for both of them. Guess what? Bret never rear fish before …at least, I had experience with Betta also known as fighting fish before.
Excited Little Girl
When I set up the fish tank, Leia was engrossed with the fishes. She called out “Fish Fish”. Bret guided her on how to feed the fishes.
It was easy for her as she does that often at my mum’s place. And now, her new responsibilities includes reminding us to feed the fish.
Gently we explained the need to feed the fishes and not to overfeed. Fishes are Perfect Starter for pets and children are never too young to learn about pets. Pets can help toddlers learn responsibility and allow them to form emotional bonds. (Read more: The Best Pets for Toddlers | eHow.com )
Toddlers are curious like scientists, they tend to explore things in any possible ways to see the reactions they can get from new things. Leia had tried to move or shake the fish tank in a rough manner and with the most ganchiong(anxious) tone, I told her the importance of handling things with care and she kinda understood
accept after a few stern reminders.
Whenever she displays good behavior towards the fishes, we will not hesitiate to applaud and praise loudly “Leia, Good Job!” Many times, Parents are Cheerleaders.

For me, it is interesting and relaxing to view the fishes floating gracefully through the crystal clear water in the tank. Strange enough, I enjoy taking care of the fishes and their environment. Could be due to motherly instinct.
