The huge glass mirror,
I was nearby, and gave him the 'play it cool' talk first.
Then prayed as I washed dishes and laundry nearby.
The Genius moment:
It works like this.
A cool sunny day on the mouse dock.
Mouse sees the cheese.
Mouse eats cheese.
And it is instant death by butter knife.
Because he's sure to bite hard enough to result
In his own hard, cold burial.
He blows me away.
He says to me
"Mom did you know that some Indians eat mice?"
Didn't know that either.
Did I mention we've been reading about pilgrims and Indians?
We've gotten a couple rented picture books from the library.
I love my job as Mom to Peeps.
I just do.
Simple, Abrupt, Sweet.
