Puppies, Kittens, Ducklings and Fish

Vinay is sick.  Again.  He is on antibiotics.  Again.  This is the third time in three months!

His temperature has been up and down from 101 to 104 for the last two days, but he is *touches wood* doing much better today.

Anyway, when he’s unwell, he wakes more often during the night and wants to go to mama’s and papa’s room.  He snuggles under the duvet with us and asks me to get the iPad out.

V: Mama, I want to see pictures of puppies.

(Cue lots of oohing and aahing and awwing)

V: Mama, I want to see pictures of kittens.

(Cue lots of oohing and aahing and awwing)

V: Mama, let’s see pictures of turtles.

(Cue lots of oohing and aahing and awwing)

This goes on with calves, horses, parrots, sheep, dolphins… 

You get the picture.

Then…

V: Mama, I want to see fish.

I find pictures of tropical fish.  Why tropical fish?  They’re just pretty to look at.

He looks at two pictures.

V: No mama – I want to see dead fish.

Me: Dead fish?!  Why do you want to see dead fish??

V: Because I want!  I want to see dead fish!

Me: Should we look at pictures of buses?

V: Yes!  Show me double-decker buses!

*sigh of relief*

Dead fish?  Dead?  WTF?
