Baby Sinclair - Yoshi - ??

So a few weeks ago (I think it was a couple Saturdays ago, not sure anymore), we went to the flea market just because we could. It was right after payday so we had a few dollars we could throw away on fleas and that always makes it more fun.

We walk along and come to the section where this little tiny Asian woman is always always selling cheap toys. We usually avoid this section because its such a BIG section and has NOTHING of value EVER. I don't know why I didn't turn and go around the other way...but we went through this lady's section and just barely saw her tiny self bending over with something. She had turtles in her hand. They were about the size of a half dollar,.. no maybe not that big,...maybe a quarter. They were seriously tiny! She was putting them in those little tiny "aquariums" you usually find those little crabs for sale around the beach living in. I asked her how much, and they were barely anything, so I got one for Mesa (who thought she was going to die of boredom if she didn't get a pet turtle SOON!) and Jared pipes up and says "what about me? I need one too, ya know!" SO Jared got one too.

Well Mesa fell in love with hers and from her research, she's certain hers is a girl. It's name is Shelly. Jared was not willing to call his a girl, and according to Mesa's studies, Jared has a boy (whew!) so he named his Baby Sinclair (yeah after the Dinosaur show that was on tv eons ago). He decided that was hard to remember, so he changed the name to Yoshi (the turtle on the Mario Brothers video games). Last I heard, he was having a hard time remember that too and wanted to change it, but didn't know to what.

We have this little bitty turtle in our house and I refuse to feed it. To me, it was just a pet rock. It's not even MY pet rock, so I shouldn't have to feed it! I feed the fish in the aquarium that the same child just had to have (so got it for his birthday)...and that's not fair, so I laid down the law and Jared feeds it. This crazy little pet rock KNOWS Jared! It actually has a personality! It comes to Jareds voice and knows when Jared is close by and might feed him! He'll run back and forth and chase Jared from side to side. When I let the boys get him out to "play with him", he actually chases their fingers around too! I'm shocked! So I had to take a few pictures. Thought you might want to see.
