I took the kids to a store called A World of Fish and called it a field trip. The little guy was determined to take home this blue and red split-tail betta that he immediately named Optimus Prime. I was happy to oblige thinking that Optimus could help me teach the kids a thing or two about stewardship and responsibility. Big Sister looked confused. “What? You’re getting them a fish?”
The plan was just to go to nearby Target.
As we drove off, the three-year-old said, “Mommy, today is a good day to buy a fish.”
Sure was, sweetie.
