A few months ago we discovered that we had a mouse at home. But it is not a current mouse, not like any of those with huge ears, pointed snout, restless tail and tiny hands who loves cheese …, our mouse likes crockery and continues to nibble our plates and cups …

The story, far from scaring to our little girl, every time we leave a plate with a little chipping, she says very pleased and pointing: “Dad, this dish has been eaten by a mouse” and laughs as if she was involved in some small mischief…

But for a few weeks it has not appeared neither more chipped cups nor dishes, and we are intrigued … it looks like our mouse would be no longer hungry … will it have gone? … The latter thought was the hypothesis most accepted, when we have noticed that our mouse didn’t eat the same number of days than the “Minnie Apronie”, an unexpected visit, has been at home.

And it is that a few weeks ago we received by post a mysterious envelope from a special blogger: Elena from “Como Igual”. And inside of it we found a little treasure of fabrics, a colourful letter made by her daughters “Luciérnaga y Mariposa” (Firefly and Butterfly), and other surprises that will be revealed another day… The fact is that inside the envelope came a very soft and funny stowaway  … “the rat apron”. All flirty with blue ribbons, and her flowered apron, aroused the curiosity of our Little girl … and we believe that of someone else …

The fact is that the Minnie sleeps in my fabrics´ room and every night we said goodbye to her leaving her on one side of the room. And every morning at dawn we find it anywhere else … we suspect that our Mouse visits to Minnie at night and ten go for a walk from one side of the house to another and as daylight comes, and the alarm-clock rings… Minnie appears where her suitor has left her. So in love is he that she has seized his hunger.

This weekend we had another “Minnie apronie” at home, which we assume will have go around the house with our friends … but tonight she will discover a new family, a good friend of our Floreta. As soon as we knew that she had a tooth that moves, we have not  to give her the new Minnie.

There she will be when that dreaded and also expected moment occur and she will great care she will look after the tooth, keeping it in her colourful apron (made with the favourite colours of her new friend), waiting for the Tooth Fairy take her that night  of nerves and illusion.

But hopefully our Minnie Apronie has many days to explore her new family home and discover the mice that eat cups and plates at their home …

And you, do you have nibble mice at home?

Have a nice week!!!!!
