Mouse Eating!

Here's a cute story! Yesterday we got Matthew this new truck and car set for being such a good boy lately and for staying dry at school all week. He really loves it! Then we went to Pizza Hut for dinner last night and in their quarter machines you could get little rubber mice! He went nuts for it! Ever since his cousin Sydney got a pet rat (Norwegian Long-Tailed Hamster), Matthew's been really into mice and small rodents! Then this morning he was playing with his new toys while Jeff and I were still sleeping (because we don't like to get up at 6:30!!)! He came running into our room all excited yelling "Mommy, Mommy Come Here!" So I crawled out of bed and followed him thinking that he needed a new cartoon or more cereal or something. Then he started saying "Mouse Eating!" I looked and he had dumped his cocoa puffs into his truck and set the mouse inside and then shut the door so the mouse couldn't escape! He was so proud of himself that he made his mouse eat and fixed up the truck as a cage! It was so cute that I had to a picture of it, even at 6:30 in the morning!! This was just proof that I need to get him a pet!! Maybe I'll sneak and get him a real mouse or something! Who knows!!

That's funny! He needs to come over and hold Alena more often. He is getting very creative! Although, I do have to admit, Rats (I mean Norweigan Long-Tailed Hamsters) are very gentle and sweet rodents. We NEVER worry about her biting Sydney!
