    Oh noooooooooo...............Beckham is dead :-(

    Just been in to feed my kids' fish (as they're on holiday for 3 weeks), and Beckham is....erm......not moving.

    How do I break it to a 3yr old that his fish that he loves to bits is dead?? And what's the best way of disposing of the corpse.

    Gerrard looks fine tho, but he belongs to my eldest, who kinda understands death and stuff like that. Just not sure how the little guy is gonna take it about his fish :-(

    Any help would be appreciated !!

    Just buy a new one to replace it. As long as it doesn't move around too much, he'll never notice the difference.


    Funnily, I had the same problem to tackle. I told my youngest the fish had gone to fish heaven. He just replied - no it hasn't, you flushed it down the loo!

    damn and i fort u mean the real thing!!!

    tell him its gone to live in next doors pond coz its bigger!!

    Get a new one and call it Joe Cole;-)

    Ya kids will love it:-D

    put it down the toilet :-( sorry!! rush out in the morning and buy him a new one, he wont know the diffrence and if he does lie and think of a reason why its changed colour :oops: i have a 4 yr old and had so many hamsters!!

    The truth is best I found. Nice little plastic box to put it in and look at it with you little one, explain it got old and died, ran out of energy. Might have to have a little burial, otherwise into the bin - surreptitiously.

    Buy a new one, if that dies too, dispose of body and explain its gone to live in a different area with a fish expert cos it developed an allergy to your water.!:whistling: Worked three times for me. :oops:

    You should write a little letter from 'Beckham' saying that he is sorry he has to go but he has gone to play in the sea for a bit and that he will be back soon....he'll ave forgot about it by 'soon' anyway lol.

    Make the letter on blue paper or something and make it sorta like a postcard....in fact mebbe a few day later write him a postcard from Beckham...

    Wicked, ur son will think he's got a friend out at sea, then when spongebob comes on tele tell him thats a friend of Beckhams, if you look carefully (and quietly ) you might see Beckham somewhere lol

    There ya go, problem solved
