I had a fun conversation with Eliza on Thursday evening I would like to save for posterity.
Mom: I wonder if Ryobi found any mice today.
Skylar: What? We don't have mice.
Mom: Yes we do, Daddy caught two yesterday. One of them was a baby.
Eliza: (Weepy, looking at me with sad eyes) You can't hurt them.
Mom: Why not? Mice aren't good in the house.
Eliza: Write a note to Daddy from the mouse. Write, Hello, I am the baby mouse. My name is Eliza. Don't hurt me because I am like your baby Eliza.
Mom: Eliza, if you were a mouse, what would you do to be a good mouse?
Eliza: (cracking herself up) This is going to be funny...This is going to be gross...(cracking herseflt up again) I wouldn't poop everywhere. : )
She is such a crack up. I don't think it will stop us from catching the baby mice that creep in every fall, but such a good try, Eliza.
