I don't think you can really count them as your children now thinking about it... Can you imagine a 10yo with his "child" betta? Idk, sounds a bit wrong, even though its normal to give young kids baby dolls as gifts.. lol my world is collapsing in thinking in this deforming way of life.. >_>!
Which reminds me how these dolls looks so humane-like nowadays, I actually got scared seing a 4yo carrying one of those babies at the market, I thought it was real!!! I got near it then I saw it was fake, but dang... it almost gave me a heart attack, specially because the way she was carrying it.
That's me on the photo alright.
