Funny thing about that mouse. He disappears for long stretches of time - off on his mouse adventures, certainly. So he was missing on his birthday. Fortunately, he returned to us and we were able to celebrate on the 7th. Cake, party hats, & a present were all in order.
Celebrating Mousie's birthday turned out to be such fun. It wasn't something that was planned but just a cute little idea that presented itself. A sweet idea, too, for remembering a little creature who is quite important to our family. And perhaps even a way to honor Calvin's childhood - I doubt a 15 year old would get too giddy over a mouse birthday party, afterall. But a 4 year old? Absolutely.
