May 20, 2008

This is a quickie but I want to document it before I forget.

The boys and I went to the park today and we had a fun time on a beautiful day (although it is getting pretty hot now). We were getting ready to leave and Nick was a bit ahead of me and Ben, when I heard him say very urgently, "Mommy! A mouse! A mouse!".

I looked to where he was pointing, not too far from us, but there was a big tree in the way. I kept looking, thinking that I would soon see a squirrel run from behind the tree. He was standing where he had a better perspective and could see past the tree better than I could. Again he yelled, "Mommy! A mouse! A mouse!". He was so excited.

A second later I saw a lady come from behind the tree, walking down the sidewalk and a millisecond later I saw her little tiny chihuahua come trailing after her on a leash. She had heard Nick calling her little dog a mouse and she was cracking up and, by then, I was cracking up laughing too. It was quite a funny moment.
