Hal had a goody bag from his field trip that he was eager to show off when I arrived to pick him up from the preschool.
“Look, Mommy!” he cried, “We went to the place where you take dogs to get fixed!”
I raised my eyebrows at that. Interesting choice of focus, I thought. While spaying and neutering are important and certainly common at a veterinary clinic, it seemed a rather odd topic for a preschool field trip.
He stuck his right foot out in front of him, wiggled it, and then pointed to it. “Next time Rose hurts her foot, we need to take her there.”
Ahhh…. That kind of “fixing”. Okaaayy…
