Owen: Mommy, do you know about mices?
Me: Yes, what about them?
Owen: They eat eggs.
Me: Oh, no, mice don't eat eggs. They like to eat seeds, nuts, roots, stuff like that.
Owen: And houses?
Me: No babe, not houses.
Owen: Why not?
Me: Because houses are too big, and mice are too little.
Owen: Oh. [looks sad]
Owen: Wait, I have a good idea!
Owen: I should tell the mices that they can eat a house, if they just take very tiny bites! [looks very happy]
