"The babies are here!" Princess CoCo was so excited.
Her Mickey Mouse fish had finally given birth. It had required all of her patience to wait for them since buying the fish a week and a half before (with her own money). Everyone at the pet store had been happy to tell her that the single Mickey Mouse fish had been pregnant.
When Princess CoCo got home from school today the mommy had passed away...and was bobbing lifelessly under the filter.
9 little orphans. CoCo dutifully scooped the dead fish out of the water and flushed her. Over the last four hours every time I've seen her she's been just staring at the fish tank.
Those 9 little fishies have a new mommy now.
