You Would Cry Too, if it Happened to You

I have done something bad. Something awfully, horribly bad.


Y'all. I forgot Tuckie's birthday.


Tuckie's so mad at me, I don't know if he'll ever forgive me.

Okay, so maybe I don't actually know Tuckie's birthday, but I do know they day he came to live with us and forgetting it was very insensitive of me.

So, to compare from last year....




Happy birthday, Tuckie. I can't believe we've kept you alive for a whole year.

He's so cute! Maybe he'll forgive you if you give him a nice big cricket.

happy birthday cutie! Don;t worry, this will be good material for you to talk about with your therapist when you grow up "And then, SHE forgot my birthday!"

Oh my!! Hooray!! Happy birthday Tuckie!!

It is hilarious. I instinctively want to say some inane thing (like I do when you see a picture of a toddler I haven't seen in a while) "He's getting so big!" LOL.

that is a HUGE accomplishment.

a year? That's a pretty major accomplishment.

Happy Birthday Tuckie!! The picture of him on his back seems so torturous!

wow--congrats! That is indeed impressive!

I am still amazed that we (ya--ME) have kept D's goldfish alive for the past 8 months! Despite the odd name given to him by the boy. Good thing there's not a chance of "Wire Down" getting bullied on the playground! ;-)

wow - yet another thing that's waking me up to just how quickly time flies by.

Happy Day, Tuckster!

Happy Birthday, Big Boy!

I've been re-reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing - Dribble makes me think of Tuckie every time.

We get to bring one of Aidin's class fish home for the summer - I'm just worried about keeping it alive until August.

Happy Birthday Tuckie from Princess Zelda! She's a year old too! We just had to move her into a 55 gallon tank. She's huge! We're wishing Tuckie all the crickets that he wants to eat! Hugs!

well done, he thrived in your care! when i was younger we 'babysat' a turtle for a friend whose family was going home to spain for the summer, my siblings and i used to catch flies at the cow shed, and feed them to the little thing, who was delighted. our friends weren't so delighted when they came back, the turtle had grown so much over the summer that they had to buy him a new terrarium (aquarium?)! and we had been so proud at how well he was doing...

He's so cute! Quick! bake him a huge chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and he'll forgive you. If he doesn't want it, just send it here :)

Wow! He's grown a lot in a year's time. Congrats on nuturing him to this stage. I know the feeling of pride. I'm still pretty amazed that I've managed to keep our Beardie alive going on 4yrs now.
