No Mice Allowed

No Mice Allowed

“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?”

  1. When my children were your children’s ages, my mother urged me to write down the cute stories I would tell her. I wish I had made the time to do so but I thought that I would always remember them. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case for me. Moments like the one you eloquently describe are precious for the joy they bring. I wish you many more joyful moments with your beautiful children. Thank you for sharing.
