As a result of a hastily called family meeting and a nearly unanimous, bipartisan vote, we, The Picettis, have decided to allow Emma to get her first pet.
So, it was late Thursday morning that mother and daughter returned home with Lady Ballerina.
Lady Ballerina is a small, purple betta fish who, so far, seems quite content to take it as easy as possible.
Not one to be deterred by her new pet’s lackadaisical attitude towards swimming around the old bowl, Emma is transfixed by the fact that LB not only doesn’t finish all of her dinner but also poops as well. It’s all that she can talk about.
Welcome to the family, little fishie!
