Please welcome the 5th member of the Dean family. Mr. Blouie Finn. (I am not a pet/animal person, so this is a big deal for me to allow another living (non-plant) into my home. And who am I kidding, my plants rarely live so apparently I only do humans!)
For Mr. Brooksie’s birthday, my little animal lover got to pick out a betta fish as his first pet. There were lots of colors and he selected the bright blue one. When I asked him what he wanted to name him, he said “Goldie”. I laughed and said, it’s not a goldfish, it’s a blue betta, is that sure what you want to name him?
He thought for a minute and said, “I’ll call him Blouie (or is it Blue-y) Finn (or is it Fin).”
And he’s been enamored ever since. He gives his little carrier lots of hugs and he wants to feed him a lot, so we hid the fish food – for Blouie’s sake. We also got a really fun aquarium that we’re setting up in Brooks’ room. I think Blouie will love his new home.
We also rounded Brooks’ day of fun with a movie – we saw Sing in the theatre, then went to Brooks’ choice of the Japanese steakhouse. He loves the fire and egg in hat trick. We finished our day back home with a homemade cake – Brooks picked the cake mix flavor (funfetti), icing flavor and sprinkles/decorations. Plus both boys helped make it the night before.
Before the steakhouse show began!
It tasted way better than it looked 🙂
I love my boys relationship. Of course, they have moments of fighting and teasing, but so often they are doing sweet things – like this “cyut” (cute) note from Landon to Brooks.
I asked Brooks about the best part of his birthday and he quickly said, “getting my new fish.” Welcome to the chaos, Blouie, you’re in for a wild ride!
