I had a pet mouse for a very short period of time when I was a child. His name was Ralph. Ralph has become legend in our house. He lives on in the fictitious stories I tell the girls, in which he goes on all sorts of adventures in the woods with Maude the dog and Moses the cat. The stuffed Ralph lives on as Amabel’s favorite toy. Yesterday, the thermometer hit 78 degrees in the afternoon, and Amabel decided it was perfect weather for Ralph to have a mud bath. This cracks me up because Amabel used to be very wary of getting dirty. But yesterday she made a wonderful mud puddle for her mouse and when she was done her body was splattered with dirt. She was delighted. So was Ralph.
