    Impulsive Decisions

    After reading this post, I just have to share a personal story!
    A year and a half ago, I decided that a class pet would be a great idea for my first grade classroom. I wanted something furry. So, off to the pet store I went. I bought, not one, but two little guinea pigs. I bought the cage and everything--which really adds up--and then took them home. 48 hours later, before I had even taken them to school, I was on the phone with the pet store. It just wasn't working out. I just wasn't bonding with the little piggies! They looked so rat-like. The pet store was very nice about it and took them back along with their cage and refunded half of my money. It was a $50.00 mistake for me.
    If you're going to buy a class pet, really give it some thought.
