I'm feigning sadness as I report that we are now less 13 little baby mice, who just left to go live at the pet store. I'm still not 100% sure about the sex of the 2 speckled mice we kept, but if they're boys and therefore capable of making even MORE baby mice, they're SO outta here.
The idea did help me to segway into a deep conversation with Jacob about how it isn't ethical to create babies if we are incapable of giving them a good home (always the mom morality plug! I try to never miss an opportunity to teach my kids not to make babies they can't raise..), but Jacob was very sad nonetheless.
Bye Bye Mousies!
