I wish I were a mouse.

This is what Caleb told me on Monday as we were walking into Walmart. I had picked him up from school and we had to run to Target and Walmart. Target was first on our list as I needed to return something and Caleb had been asking for some sweatshirts b/c he was cold. He hates to be cold. When we went into Target the sun was peeking through the clouds. We were only in there about 30 minutes and when we came out it was snowing hard! Madison and Caleb were so excited :) We hopped in the car and drove 2 stores over. It was coming down even harder now and starting to accumulate on the cars and grass. We were walking into Walmart when Caleb looked at me and said " I wish I were a mouse." I looked at him while trying not to laugh and asked him why. In the back of my mind I was thinking "okay they must be talking about mice at school right now". Caleb looked at me with a very serious look on his face and said "because then I would be tiny and mom see this little pocket on my coat (here he opened up his jacket and pointed to this tiny pocket inside his coat) well I could fit right inside it and then I would stay warm cause mice don't like to be cold and neither do I". I couldn't help but start laughing! This kid comes up with the craziest things sometimes but then it does make sense....mice don't like to be cold :)

Oh, I do love to hear those precious thoughts that go through those amazing little minds! Thanks for sharing. Indeed, if he were a mouse he would fit right inside that pocket! It makes perfect sense; he would not be cold in there. Too cute. :)
