Playing Tag Can Lead to Trouble

My best friend got Belle some Sea Monkeys for Christmas last year.

Now, I have come to realize that not everyone knows what Sea Monkeys are.

So here:

What are Sea-Monkeys?

Anyway, we set them up a few months ago and watched them grow.

Then, one day...they all died.

Belle cried profusely.

We realized you are supposed to aerate the water daily.

Ok...mental note as I frantically search for more.

Until we saw 3 swimming around.

Some eggs hadn't actually hatched yet. YIPPIEE! Sea Monkeys live!

So now we have about 10 of those little monsters and they are about an inch long and the kiddos love to check on them every day.

Well...one day Belle says to me, "Mom...are they gonna play tag ALL DAY LONG?!?!"

That would be the day I discovered that we have a rambunctious boy SM in the tank with some pretty little lady SMs.

And yes...they played tag for 3 straight days.

I came home from work the other day and text'd my Hubs to tell him that pretty little lady #1 was great with babies and rambunctious boy SM has moved on to greener pastures and is currently playing tag with pretty little lady #2 and I can see babies in her tail now too.

I receive the following text back:

"We are going to make GREAT shrimp parents!"

I laughed.

And cried.

When I realized...I'm a grandma at 30.

Playing tag has lead to this!
