When it started to get cool, we went inside to take a bath and feed Madison dinner. After her bath, I had the back door open while I was feeding Madison dinner. All of a sudden, I saw a rat, not a mouse, run along the back fence. I jumped up and ran to the door to see where it went. It went to the back corner of our yard and I couldn't see it after that. I quickly shut the door and turned around to Madison. When I turned around, this is what I saw:
Madison grabbed the baby food container and tipped it over. I am quickly learning how fast babies are...I only left her for 15 seconds! Doing what any good mom would do, I grabbed my phone to take a picture. Her pajama sleeve was already a mess and she had sweet potatoes in her hair, so another bath was a given. Since she needed another bath, I let her play for a few minutes and she loved it!
Lesson learned: Don't give a baby a bath BEFORE dinner. I am also convinced there is a nest of rat babies living in the corner of our yard. Eric will definitely be checking that out this weekend.
