Parental Pet Parade

In our quest to become AWESOME parents...my husband and I decided to buy a hermit crab (missed that blog post? you can read about it here).  We have our sweet little Spidey. 

Over the course of the days and weeks, we have seen a great deal of this little crab's personality.  He is a true hermit.....doesn't like anyone watching him or around.  Only comes out at night and will hide if he sees or senses you around....

This crab is just like my husband!

So I thought that I was going to be the "spoiler" out of the two of us.....however I have learned that my husband is WORSE than I am.  First Spidey needed more toys...then a bigger cage....then better food...

Somehow in the process of this...we acquired a fish.  I HATE FISH!!!! The smell of fish is repulsive.... won't even eat it!!!  It really all started when I was a child and we got this big fish tank.  We went to the store and bought two angelfish and two catfish.  I was so excited to have those fish in my room ....I woke up in the middle of the night to a scene of MURDER.  The catfish (those mothersuckers) ATE the angelfish's eyes!!! There were my beloved angelfish lying eye-less in the bottom of the tank....I SCREAMED!  Our tank disappeared very soon after that!  (A sincere thank you to the ass in the pet store that didn't bother to tell us that those fish couldn't be put together!!! TRAUMATIZED ME!  I'll be sending you my shrink bills!)

So my husband went and got this fish when I was away.  I was angry ....until I watched the thing.  The fish is so fiesty....if you put your finger near the tank...he starts flipping out and trying to break through the glass. Definitely has an attitude about him and won't put up with anyone's crap.....

The fish is just like me!!

Of course....my husband needed to get him a better tank...more decorations and better food for him too!

So apparently, this wasn't enough for us because yesterday we got another hermit crab.....a real teeny tiny baby one.  So small....His name is Captain Jack (in regards to his pirate shell that he will be growing into!)

So here's the thing....I fear that my house will turn into a zoo if we do not have a child soon.   Hear that God?  I've already started building Noah's Ark so I think it's time you give us our baby!

Just as long as there are no large bugs, spiders or reptiles involved I say go for it! Just stay away from the creepy crawly things! :)

This is EXACTLY how I ended up with two dogs and two cats lol.

Hermit crabs are cute and super easy to take care of. :)

I just love hermit crabs. Jason wants to get another dog and some form of reptile (yuck) such as a bearded dragon. We will probably have a zoo soon too.

*love you bunches*
