This past weekend we moved my sister and her little guy into their new house. This was huge for them…it’s been over a year since his dad left and they had been living with my parents while they adjusted to a single income. Now she is ready to be on her own again and I’m so proud of them.
We were worried my nephew wouldn’t adjust to the move so well so my sister set up his room and all his toys so he could come in and see all the awesome stuff – and hopefully be so excited that he won’t have time to be upset. Well that worked like a charm. He LOVED the new place and kept telling me how much he loved his new house.
Part of the new house thing was that my sister really wanted to get him a fish because he loves fish and then could use it as a cool nightlight. She didn’t have the extra for it though so I offered to buy him the set up. We went and picked out his fishy and brought him back to their new house to set up in his new tank. I asked my nephew what he wanted to named him and he said, clear as a bell, ‘Himswimming’.
Himswimming?? I tried to suggest alternatives like Rocky, shark bait, flounder, I even suggested Nemo….but he wasn’t having it, he just kept shaking his head and saying ‘nope, himswimming’.
So there it is…the only fish in the world with the name Himswimming. I should have known, he has a stuffed cow named ‘goesmoo’.
