According to Buzzfeed, Peyton’s fish, which she named Mermaid, was gifted to the tot in October after a trip to Petco…

Mom Lauren told the outlet: “Picking out the right one was a huge decision for her and, after a long 15 minutes, she finally made her choice.”

However, no one could have anticipated what went down just last week…

Lauren received a surprising call from her daughter’s preschool: “I was absolutely not prepared to pick up the phone and hear, ‘Mrs. Scanlan, did you happen to know that Peyton brought her Beta fish to school today in her sippy cup?!’

I just replied with, ‘Um, no Ms. Cheryl, I did NOT know that she smuggled her fish this morning in her sippy cup,'” Lauren shared.

She continued: “I did ask, ‘Please tell me something like this has happened before at the school.'” And her reply was, ‘No, this is a first for our school!'”

“I couldn’t even be mad at her.” Lauren admitted.

“I opened the sippy cup lid and saw that she even put fish food in the cup! She was a good and responsible pet owner — pretty impressive for a 3-year-old to fill her cup with water, scoop her fish out of the tank, put it in the sippy cup, add food, close the lid, and put it in her backpack…all within a max of two minutes while I ran upstairs to get her clothes. She is truly wise beyond her years!”

You’ll be glad to know Mermaid survived the traumatic event. Lauren has since secured Mermaid’s tank and discussed the incident with Peyton to make sure it never happens again.
