He's even more talented than we thought. Oh yes, let's start at the beginning of the story.
Monday afternoon I was nursing Adie on the couch and a MOUSE ran across the room. Yep, screamed out for Darin whom was outside. He came in and asked me what he'd like for me to do about the mouse. CATCH HIM, duh? So Darin humors me by getting a broom and starts banging it on the couch and such to get the mouse to run so he can broom it to death. No luck.
That evening we see Mr. Mouse run across the kitchen floor. I scream again, and jump up onto the counter where I stayed for a good 15 minutes until I believe it was clear. Again Darin humors me by banging around the broom as if he was going to catch it. (I think he's really getting annoyed at this point. Um.. we have MOUSE and an almost 3 month old that lays on the ground where this mouse was running. GROSS!!!)
We then set two traps with yummo peanut butter to lure him in. Yeah, he managed to eat the peanut butter without getting snapped. Grrr.. we have a smart peanut butter loving mouse on our hands. No good.
So yesterday Darin was walking over to his dad's woodworking shop and he feels something strange in his shoe. He gets to the shop and takes off his shoe, shakes it and turns it upside down. You got it.. out drops the now dead Mr. Mouse.
Darin killed the mouse in his shoe.
Not only can my Darin kill flies in his armpit, he can now kill mice in his shoes.
Just so you know, I will be wearing flip flops for the rest of my life. I'm really not looking forward to wearing flip flops for the rest of my life because it gets really cold in Indiana during the winter. I am not risking becoming a member of Darin's "kill mice in my shoes" club. No suree!
I can't not put up a picture of my Adie in an entire blog post!! So without further ado.. here is my most adorable, SMILING Adelyn!! (She's been smiling for awhile but these are the best pictures I have gotten of the cheesy chubby grin.)
Adie loves her mouse shoe killing daddy!!!
