Thank you everyone for your replies.  You've definitely given me a lot to think about (which is what I was hoping for).  I think I'm leaning towards a wide angle prime right now.  As it is, I have triple coverage in the 50-60 range (15-85, 60mm macro, and 55-250)

These are all very different lenses. There's nothing from with having some overlap, what you want to avoid is duplicating function.

You wouldn't be duplicating function by getting a fast lens.

So, that's why I'm thinking a fast wide angle prime would be the best addition.

28mm is a "normal length"  lens on APS-C. You won't get nearly as shallow dof as you would with the 50, but the fast aperture will help in low light.

Save up the monies, when they get to be 2+ years old you'll need 1 series AF to keep up.
