As a science project we started a tank of sea monkeys a few days ago. My 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter are sooo excited... I was explaining that they are not really monkeys, but a kind of brine shrimp.
Charlotte says "Ohh, we are going to feed them and they will get bigger?"
Charlotte: " Really Big?
Mom : Not too big.
Charlotte: But just right to eat?
Mom: What ?
Charlotte: Big so we can eat them right?
Mom: (Doubled over laughing)... Not these, they are too small , and are going to be our pets.
Charlotte: (looking relived) ooohhhhhh.... Big grin.
Life is good.... enjoy the gifts.
