Lauren has 4 ducks that we play with every day at bathtime. She named them Uno, Dos, Tres (which she pronounces Thess), and Quattro. Friday is Share Day, and she asked if she could bring one of the ducks to school. Why not?
Well, I didn't think that Lauren would decide to share Dos with a friend on the bus and she would get lost.
Bathtime was very, very sad.
She mopily got out of the tub, wrapped herself in a towel, and announced she didn't feel much like a story tonight.
"Ok," I said.
She went into her room where Alec and Lindsay were waiting. He found that Candy, Lauren's betta fish, had died. When I came into the room to give her a hug, she was lying on her bed, still in the towel, face down sobbing. "I want another fish like Candy."
"Ok," I said. "We can go to the pet store tomorrow."
Hopefully, the weekend will get better.
