When I was a little girl I had a parakeet that mysteriously changed color very often. My bird kept dying and my parents replaced it with many new parakeets, some were blue and some were green. I didn't have a clue. One day the cage was empty and I asked where Buddy was. My Mom said "Oh Buddy went to Florida on vacation to see his family." So I didn't cry because I assumed he would return eventually. Then I just forgot. No Hysterics. Later that year my parents asked me if I wanted to go to Disney world in Florida & I said "No because no one ever comes back from Florida" :) So when my Sons Beta fish died I told him the same thing that the fish went to Florida, and it wasn't a big deal! He's 3. I say let the kid be a kid and don't burden them with death & sadness, there will be plenty of it when they grow up.
