Here's photographic proof of the Pet Solution.
You can't really tell, but this is my big pasta serving bowl. Grande. And so is the turtle. So one more round of applause to Kid 2's brilliance.

Also, this reminds Husband of that part in the great movie "Cinderella Man" when Russell Crowe's character talks about "bring home the turtle/title" - have you seen that movie? You should. Apologies in advance for the mouth on the agent. I wasn't involved with the dialog. Or anything else, you know. Ron Howard didn't consult me on this one, even though he was my first crush. Some people's memories are just a little shorter than others.
