One Fish, Two Fish

Skittles the fish

With Two Fish and a Dog

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two fish and a dog
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
‘Cause of you

That’s the new theme song in our house. We have a new pet in our home  … everyone, meet Skittles the Fish.

Jake named him that because when we first brought him home, he looked like all the colors in the rainbow. Mostly, he stays this red color that you see in the picture but some days, he changes from red to blue to green. Kinda weird if you ask me.

So after a couple of weeks of watching both fish, Jake and I wrote a poem about them. Well, it was mostly me doing the writing but I threw in a line about Jake’s latest joke (I’m sure you’ll be able to figure this part out!).

Just to remind you, Fin is the first fish we bought … and yes LARRY at Me, Myself and Kids, he’s still alive.

Please enjoy our attempt to be Dr. Suess:

One fish, two fish

Red fish, blue

Fin the blue one moves fast

While Skittles watches him swim past.

Fin is fast

Skittles is slow

They both swim high

Until their food sinks low.

The red one is big

and the blue one is not.

And when Jake blows his nose

he thinks it’s funny but it’s snot.

Watching them swim

they both seem glad

But put two Betta fish in the same bowl

and they’ll get mad.

Not one of them is like the other

Don’t ask us why

Go ask your mother.
