Is there a mouse in the house?

This is not a new story, but I wanted to share before I forgot it...

Jocelyn's hair is pretty long. And it tangles somethin' fierce.
I always tease her in the mornings while we're trying to brush out all the tangles:
"Did you let a mouse make a little nest in your hair during the night?"
She always giggles.
"Uh oh. He had a little friend sleeping over here, too."
Brush, brush, brush.
You get the idea.
One night I was putting her to bed, and she had all her hair fanned out on her pillow, with a little shoe box with a Barbie pillow and a wash rag in the bottom. It was sitting on her hair, right above her head.
"Mom- it's to keep those mice out of my hair in the night!"
I laughed and told her she was a thoughtful, special little girl. Cuz she is.

I'm relieved it was the box laying on her hair. I was afraid you were going to say a real mouse got in her hair!! You know about me and mice!!! Jocelyn is quite the little princess!! Love her so much.

Cute story. I would welcome tangles from beautiful, thick long hair.

I can totally hear that whole conversation! She is so precious! Don't tease me--if you ask to come visit us this summer, then you better! We miss you guys as well and you are always welcome!! I know you miss Bella jumping all over you more than anything. :)
