Elizabeth rescued some mice that were going to be killed and was keeping them in her room as pets.
Alex has discovered a mouse in the house and, not only will I not help and praise him for trying to catch it, I have absolutely forbidden him to go into the room where it is living. When I did catch him in there last night, I immediately removed him and shut the door. Silly Mom! How can he catch it if the door is shut? He told me just how unreasonable and un-cat-like I was being for over an hour, sitting outside the door last night.
