“Mommy can mice climb?” My five year old asks as he climbs around on the couch I’m sitting on.
“Yes, they are very good climbers” I answer.
“Do mice like cheese?” He asks after pulling himself out from under a chair.
“They like lots of different types of food” I answer.
“Do they like climbing on metal?” He runs his fingers along a silver picture frame on the wall.
I look around the room and think about his questions, “Have you been hiding mouse food all over the house?”
“Yes some cheese” He answers proudly.
“Honey that’s not a good idea… We don’t want mice in our house”
“Oh okay” He cleans up his stashes of cheese and asks, “Mommy what do naked rats eat?”
