At first we found two snails at the lake. My son, brought them home. They survived in a metal bowl. Until we went to the lake again and it seems that we had now a need for a fish tank.
We then had snails, fish, water frog, aquarium crab, eel, catfish and two neons. Survival of the strong we now have snails, catfish and one neon. Later we got a Blue Parrot and Bearded Dragon. This was incredible, still easy to maintain and happy my children were.
As a gift for graduating my husband got me a Bichon Frise in the summer of 2014. With all my animals and two children and other events my husband and I were at that point that we thought we were complete.
Most people who knew us, felt like it was okay to say, “you are good with two boys”, or “you have enough on your plate.” Although, I can see their perspective I wanted one more baby…
One day I found out we were having baby three. It truly was a surprise because we didn’t calculate this new blessing into our minds, but a blessing was to be had.
We decided that we were ever expanding and it was time to plant deeper roots and buy a bigger home in a more rural/suburban environment and on that note we got a puppy.
It’s not that we bit off more than we can chew. We chew just find, thanks. It is that at this point with all this, it feels right. Not allot, or much, or crowded but comfy.
All the gaps and emptiness and loneliness just don’t exist, neither does peace and quiet… but I have my commute for that.
Who know we may even one day adopt a baby Llama…why not.
My zoo is really a love farm. You can’t be alone as long as you have a mirror but with a family member whether it be a spouse, child, room mate, pet even a beta fish that little life needs your love, which in return gives love and a reason to not feel lonely. I do this with my #fannytasticlife of a family!
