This evening, I was out of the kitchen for LITERALLY two seconds (that's about how long it takes for the average mother to use the washroom, am I right?!), but came RACING back in when I heard:
Child Number Three: (softly singing) Heeeeeere, fishy-fishy!!
I discovered her, standing at the kitchen counter on a pushed-up chair, about to drop A SPOONFUL OF HER CHOCOLATE PUDDING into the fishbowl.
Mother: (grabbing Wee Three just in time to save Ruby the Betta) New Rule, everybody!! Sharing is GOOD, just NOT snacks with fish. Got it??!!
Child Number Three: (smiling sweetly) Nope!!
