there is a rat in our house!

there happens to be a rat in our house. and apparently, it has curly dark hair, a cute chubby face and is wearing a princess nightgown! josiah and miley were already in bed, bill was at a meeting and i REALLY needed to wash my hair. i figured ella kate would be ok watching tv downstairs by herself while i hopped in the shower. WRONG. she apparently got the urge for a little snack and decided to help herself to some hot dog buns. yes, i said hot dog buns. after i got out of the shower, i ran downstairs to check on her and saw little pieces of plastic everywhere. all over the couch and all over the floor. i asked ella kate what it was and her reply was, "nuffin." hmmm.. nuffin sure makes a big mess! i take the pillows of the couch to clean up the itty bitty pieces of plastic and there i find the bag of hot dog buns. it looked like a rat had torn into the package and ate the tops of 6 hot dog buns! i grabbed the bag and looked at ella kate who sheepishly replies, "umm.. i was just needin' me some bread." then she smiles. the cute, crooked little smile that she has done since she was a baby. ohh.. this girl is something else. and by far, the cutest rat i've ever seen.

  1. Oh, that little girl would just crack me up!!!! You have the best "little kid" stories I have ever heard. Your house must be one BIG adventure. Having stopped with one child, if something is broken or missing there in no question who did it? :O)
