A Mouse In the House

It’s the mice again.

In the house.

The dollhouse, that is.

My kids were supposed to be getting ready for school, but when I went down the hall to check on them, they had their mice in the dollhouse and my daughter was taking pictures with my camera.

“Mom! Look how cute they are! And Spot’s totally a movie star!” My daughter beamed and held up the camera to show me this shot…

Okay, I admit, the picture is cute, and the dollhouse is the perfect size for the mice. (My kids have put them in there before, but only for a short time, and usually when I’m there to supervise.) “All right,” I told them, “A couple more minutes of playing then you have to put them back in their cage. I don’t want them going to the bathroom in there.”

“They won’t, Mom,” my son promised. “They’re potty trained.”

Hmm. I doubt it. Though Spot did go into the bathroom…

Then the bedroom…

I smiled and went to start breakfast.

A few minutes, and several pictures later (my daughter took 24 to be exact), I heard…

“Mommy! Come here! Hurry! We need a Kleenex…”

And now I’m wondering, does anyone have a dollhouse-sized mop?
