Anyone get mice in the house? My DD's apartment is surrounded by cornfields, so with harvest and fall here, mice are trying to move into her kitchen. So SIL put some mice killer way back under stove where the kids couldn't get to it.
A few days later, early Saturday morning, granddaughter Lily (almost 4) went into Mommy's room.
"Mommy! Mommy! There's a mouse!"
Mommy, rolling over into her pillow, moaning, "Yes, I know. We're trying to get rid of it."
"No Mommy, look! There's a mouse!"
My daughter's eyes opened to find a dead mouse, held up by the tail, dangling in front of her nose.
SCREAM! "Lily, DROP IT!"
Lily dropped it, but didn't know what was wrong. "I tried to feed it some crackers, but it wouldn't eat. Why didn't the mouse want my crackers?"
Some Saturday mornings don't start out too well...
