We had a special fish bowl (thanks Ben and Cassi), so we decided we would make our first venture into the pet world by letting Lila get a fish.
On the ride home from the pet store.
Johnny: Do you like your fish, Lila?
Lila: I got a boy fish. That would be silly for a little girl to get a girl fish. I love my boy fish!
Later that day.
Emily: Lila, how about naming your fish, Fin? That is a good fish name.
Lila: No, I already picked a name.
Emily: Oh, you did? What name did you pick?
Lila: I don't know.
Emily: I thought you said you picked a name.
Lila: I did!
Emily: What is it?
Lila: I don't know!
Emily: Ohhh, you mean you want to call him 'I don't know'?
Lila: Yes, his name is 'I don't know'.
A few days later.
Johnny: Why isn't that true?
Lila: I don't know?
Johnny: Its not true because of your fish?
Lila: No! My fish knows everything!
Johnny: That's funny that you have a fish named 'I don't know' that knows everything.
Fortunately, with such a knowledgeable fish in the house, all of our kids have been practicing their fish talk.
