Feeding Aqua

video

While this clip might seem "uneventful" to some, I find it so adorable. Let me explain why... 

It is a very rare occasion when Charlie is even allowed to be present while Madi feeds her pet fish, "Aqua."  But sometimes, if she's in the mood, she will take him in her room and allow him to watch this "sacred" ritual.

Due to our scrambled post-daylight savings time schedule, Madi forgot to feed Aqua one morning this week, so I took Charlie into her bedroom to do the honors.

I didn't realize, until I watched him, how intensely he's studied Madi doing her job. He had it down pat, mimicking the precise hand movements that he's observed, and he made sure to use the correct tone of voice, just like his big sister!  In fact, at one point, he started out calling Aqua in his own pitch and then immediately raised his voice an octave higher!

One thing is guaranteed...he'll be a really good student.
