William, talking to the tadpoles yesterday: "Please, please, please, grow into frogs before you die. I just really want to see you turn into a frog and just know your are going to die before you are a frog. Pleeeease don't die."
So far, I have gotten away with just flushing them down the toilet when they die, but this kid is getting a little attached. I really don't want to have any tadpole funerals.
