I've become accustomed to Braden's peculiar ways. This recent antic is, shall we say, creative? He has taken to putting pickles in baggies full of water and calling them fish. I thought I confiscated all the "fish", but no, my very confused toddler found a bag this morning and will not relinquish it! He keeps saying, "Hi fishies, look at the fishies, my fishies!" Then he'll look at me and say, "Pickle?" Then he'll go back to calling them fishies, and then say, "Pickles are washing?" I think he's flummoxed. I thought maybe he would like to eat the pickles, since he usually loves them, but that just stressed him out. I started to dump the water in the sink and he completely freaked out and kept pointing to the fish bowl, where the REAL fish are, and said, "NO! Put them here!" So, when Braden comes home from school, we will be having a little chat. NO MORE SWIMMING PICKLES!!
