My amazing and talented husband built a bird feeder for me the other weekend. Within a few days, we had a swarm of birds (chickadee's, blue jay's, junco's). Twin1 has been asking for a new pet for some time, so I suggested to him that he could pretend the birds were his pets. He was thoroughly pleased. Upon hearing this, the toddler got very excited and ran to the kitchen. I was unsure of what he was doing and could hear the chair scraping across the kitchen floor. I heard the clinking of dishes and a few minutes later he returned with the strainer. I asked if he was cooking and he responded, "Birds." Huh. A ha. He immediately put his boots on and headed out the door. He had his net and was going to catch a pet!!
