The answer was C.

The answer was C.

Micah woke up to find a mouse trying to swim in Simon’s little bathtub yesterday. He scooped it out in a can and sent it out with the trash before he went to work and then I sanitized the bathroom in the afternoon. It was disturbing to find a mouse in the bathtub, yes, but more disturbing because now we have no idea where it came from and how we can prevent any future invaders from breaching the walls of our fortress.

Also, when Micah told me what he had found, he told me very slowly. “There’s a mouse . . . in Simon’s . . . bathtub.” Which gave me sufficient time to fill in blanks before he got there. In Simon’s . . . potty. In Simon’s . . . bedroom. In Simon’s . . . crib. In Simon’s . . . diaper bag. So now whenever I go into Simon’s room or whatever, I half expect to find a mouse. Keeps me on my toes.

  1. This is the one I would have chosen to start my week with considering the options, but hearing your description makes me think twice.

  2. We’ve had a few mice in our house. It is funny because the first time I saw one I almost had a heart attack but after a little bit, one ran through the living room while we were watching a movie and I barely flinched. I think we found where they were getting in though and blocked it off, so we haven’t seen one for a while. They are kind of nasty when you don’t know where they’ve been.

  3. Gross. For some reason this reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. And the flour. Ech. I’m so sorry and hope that you don’t have to deal with any of his little friends.
