A Wee Little Mouse and Some Science
Meet wee little Thomas. He loves to nibble on brie, cheddar, swiss...most any kind of cheese except of course limburger and maybe stilton. But for now, he is cheese-less and staring wide-eyed at a science experiment, which in his wee little brain makes very good sense in teaching the idea of turgor pressure. (what?) The celery and blue dye are from an experiment that my two older ones are conducting. As for Thomas, he was made from Sculpey by my daughter, Anya. You can tell from his worried expression, he is awaiting the oven ritual with both trepidation and relief. Probably a little more relief than fear - that way he'll be non-squishable.
