The day we’ve been dreading finally came. No, I don’t mean Income Tax Day; though if you’ve not gotten yours done, stop reading this now and go finish them. You’ve only got a few more hours.
Today our 3 year-old asked for a pet. My wife didn’t realize that’s what she was doing at first. She’d asked for a goldfish, and when my wife returned with a bag of cheesy crackers our daughter burst into tears.
What she wanted, of course, was a real goldfish. The kind you keep in a bowl, overfeed and flush down the toilet. Hoping I could defuse the situation, or perhaps just to pass the buck, my wife put her on the phone with me.
Like any good parent, I stalled, and told her we’d talk about it when I got home. In the mean time I’ve been doing some research, and here are some pretty cool options I’ve found; some admittedly are a bit exotic. Which do you think we should get?nggallery id=’127668′
