In which Miss Mouse tries to get out of going to church.

March 6th, 2011

My mom has some nasty thing going on with her heel — if she stands too long, it becomes incredibly painful. She overdid it yesterday at the Science Center and so we made her rest today, including staying at their condo instead of coming to church.

This sparked the following exchange with Miss Mouse:

Mouse: “Is Nana coming?

Me: “No, Nana’s foot hurts, so she is staying at the condo.

Mouse: …thoughtful pause…”My foot hurts, too. I go to condo?

Nice try, kiddo.
