Oh, no--not mice again!
And this time they are cute little baby mice, which Sebastian found while Bret was tilling. He apparently hit a nest, and Sebastian found two babies with closed eyes and a third that didn't survive the tiller. He brought them to me.
"Mama, papa told me to feed them to the chickens, but I can't do it. They're too little and cute."
They are presently in a dishpan cuddling up to one of Una's stuffed animals and drinking milk from an eye-dropper. I told the kids that we can't, absolutely can't keep them. I told them that we have cats in the barn in order to kill mice. I said this as I fed one of them milk.
I stink as a farm wife.
