Ever seen a cute fish?

No?  Ever wonder why?  It’s because fish are known to eat their young.  I say this disturbing bit to preface my recent conversation with my husband:

**sitting on the sofa with a sleeping toddler between us**

 Husband studies Rosie for a minute.

DH: She’s so darn cute.

I look at Rosie for a minute.

Me: Aw. You’re right.

DH: But they all look sweet when they’re sleeping.

Me: Yep.  Makes me wish I had a spoon!

DH: Y’know, it makes sense why some species actually eat their young. 

Me: Wha…? 

DH: Like fish.  Have you ever seen a cute fish? It’s because all the cute ones get eaten!

Me: Bwah-hahaha! Good thing we’re not fish!

DH: I made you laugh!This is going in your blog, huh?

Me: You bet.

    It is usually not moments like those that I ponder the “some animals eat their young.” For me it is usually when LatteGirl is in one of her “contrary” stages where nothing is “right” for her.

    I’m with Latte Man, eating your young comes after 1.2 million “MOMMY, can I GET THIS?!!” at Target.

    Cute story. Hope you are feeling better. (whheeeee Vicodin!!
