“There’s a mouse in the toilet’ my 5 year old screamed this morning as he went to use their bathroom. ¬†Nah, that’s can’t be what he said. ¬†”Mama come here, mouse in the toilet’ he screeched. ¬†I ran over and sure enough, there was a mouse doggie paddling in the toilet.
To which I ran with my son out of the bathroom and yelled for my husband to take care of the mouse in the toilet.
And flush, it was gone.
Which lead to the rest of my morning of all the cleaning I had been putting off, it all got done because where did that mouse come from? Where has he been and how long has he been in the house?
The kids, especially my daughther, have been hoarding. ¬†My daughter had snacks under her bed, and last week I found some goldfish under my sons bed. ¬†But cleaning for a mouse problem, is entirely different. ¬†With bleach.
The good in this was that all the things that have been hanging around in the house, got donated or thrown out. ¬†We only had to throw 3 boxes of crackers that were left open (we didn’t take any chances of the mouse visiting inside them). ¬†Everything else was closed up and in Tupperware.
So if you want to get rid of the clutter in your home, put a mouse in it wait an hour and then get to it.
P.S. ¬†We have 9 traps now set out in hopes that the mouse that we had was a male thinking this was his bachelor pad.
