bye bye goldie...


Well our gold fish (goldie) passed away this weekend....usually when the fish dies we go out and buy a new one before the kids realize that the fish is not sleeping. This time Ziad is older and more fahman! The fish is sleeping bit did not work on him...*sigh*




We had a small funeral for goldie on Friday, we had to decide where to bury her. We finally decided to bury her in the garden at his aunt's house downstairs. It rained on us, so we had to make it quick, we read the fate7a and put a flower to mark her grave, it was the shortest funeral ever! I hope the cat will not dig her out!




So now our fish bowl sits empty, and goldie is in jennah with her fish family and friends.




She was a good fish, always hungry! Anytime someone got close to her bowl she would come up and wait for food. I think she may have died because she ate too much. Right before bedtime on Thursday, Bilal decided to feed her, which is a big nono here! He put too much food, and being the faj3ani she is, she ate too much I guess...I was planning on cleaning her bowl in the morning....*sigh*




This is why I hate getting pets for the kids, their death too soon is inevitable...

Haram, Goldie!! we used to say that the fish went to their real home in Aqaba!! but when I started killing them with my negligence, it was happening way too often:) Now we just flush them down the toilet and get some more!!

a robo pet is what you need,look up something called "pleo" on youtube,robots like these will be more affordable over the years..nice clean everlasting pets.

you should have used this as a lesson to teach your kids that parenting and taking care of them is a tough job. That if you didn't do your job well, you might....

Nevermind. That's inappropriate.

I love your mix of english and arabic words.
I think it's a miracle to get a gold fish to live past a few months. I don't know how people do it!

awww, a real funeral and everything!
bt pets are actually good in this, it teaches the kids about how transient life is and how to deal with death, albeit in a small way.
unf, death is too huge a part of life, and the loss of a pet is supposed to help them cope with the loss of a family member, such as an aging beloved granparent (b3d 3omron taweel insha Allah!)

salam i suggested we flush the fish in the toilet saying that since it is a fish it has to be water..but ziad said it is a fish..not poop...so i rested my case..:)

mr anon..nah a robo pet is too cold..i think experiencing death in a small way is a good experience for kids..:)

qabbani...yeh im glad it was not a dog or a cat..they are too big to dig a grave for!:)
