mice, spiders and soot gremlins, oh my!
I was suspecting, but yup, we do have a mouse in the house!
I saw itʻs evidence on the stove two mornings in a row. A big fat ewwwww. So back to the mint leaves experiment.
I also saw a spider on my keyboard today and yelled "SPIDER", and the little one came running looking for this fascinating creature!
My daughter ( the one that talks apparently) loooooves both, mice and spiders. So when she heard us discussing the mouse situation to the landlord, she got super excited and started looking for the mouse herself. She started searching the house for some mice, spiders and while she was at it, some soot gremlins too (ʻcause, why not?).
hereʻs what she said as she ran around the house looking for all three.
"huh, where did it go?" In a very concerned manner.
"what does the mouse say mama?" waiting for me to reply.
"the itsy bitsy spider.." moving her fingers in a crawling spider motion.
and finally " COME OUT, COME OUT, WHERE EVER YOU ARE!" in a full blown volume.
Well how about a compromise, I can do soot gremlins.
So hereʻs what Iʻll be yelling for the coming I donʻt know how many days "STAY AWAY, STAY AWAY, WHEREVER YOU ARE!"
