birdsofaheather Someone had a little too much fun in the kitchen... aka what happens when you ask your 8-year-old to watch the baby while you clean the bathroom #whyinevergetanythingdone #terrifictwos #winterwonderland 2w
  •   justagadreamer OMG don't breath in; lol! 2w
  •   5hardts Horrible!!! #memories 2w
  •   growinguplow It wasn't as messy as this, but I remember when my little one sprinkled the bottle of cinnamon all over the floor. The bonus was that the vacuum smelled good for months afterwards! 2w
  •   birdsofaheather @growinguplow yum! gotta love it! I will be cleaning remnants of this up for days... hopefully the ants won't show up! 2w
  •   binoymatt This pic is so cute hahaha. I always find mischievous stuff like this cute...when it's not my own child LOL! Miss you guys! 2w
  •   birdsofaheather @binoymatt ha ha! Miss you & Logan too! 2w

birdsofaheather kids fell in love with a stray {ok, so did I} 1mon
  •   birdsofaheather @5hardts He (or she?) is so sweet and hangs out on our porch all day. The kids want to build a coop for the cat for shelter. He tries to sneak inside every chance he gets, but he's going to stay an outside kitty. ;) 1mon
  •   sparkin76 Beautiful cat! 1mon
  •   birdsofaheather @sparkin76 couldn't have asked for a sweeter/prettier stray! (I guess she is a she since she's a calico...) 1mon
  •   lu_and_ed She's gorgeous! Are you gonna keep her? 1mon
  •   birdsofaheather @lu_and_ed We're definitely committed to taking care of her! We have an inside cat & one of my sons is allergic (thankfully our cat doesn't bother his allergies), so we can't bring her inside. But she's getting spoiled! 1mon
  •   lu_and_ed You could try taking her to a vet and getting her checked for a chip - she looks very healthy! She may be someone's pet who ran away. If she has a chip you can help reunite her with her family! 1mon
  •   birdsofaheather @lu_and_ed yes! I've thought about taking her in & getting her checked for a chip. I have a feeling the people who rented our house before we moved back in might have left her behind. :( 1mon
  •   lu_and_ed It's usually free to get them checked (I work in animal rescue, heh) and the vet will usually help you find her owners if they are still around. 1mon

birdsofaheather Not sure this is allowed, but it's happening! (Laundromat to the rescue until dryer vent issues are fixed in a few weeks...) 1mon
  •   pleasant A few weeks? 1mon
  •   pleasant Yikes. What's wrong? 1mon
  •   birdsofaheather @pleasant The builder made the laundry closet upstairs too small, and the vent doesn't have enough room for the lint to be pushed up into attic...so it's a fire hazard. The contractor who fixed some things before we moved back in is busy & can't get hook-ups/water lines into our garage for a few weeks! Ah! 1mon

birdsofaheather I'm sad that my fern garden is gone, but these baby mockingbirds in our butterfly bush cheered me right up! 1mon
  •   birdsofaheather I'll have to research mockingbirds...one is staying with the nest & another is keeping guard nearby- dive-bombing the neighborhood stray cat every chance it gets. Perhaps they mate for life? 1mon

birdsofaheather ☆my mermaid☆ 2mon
  •   suzannemckay This is an amazing pic!! Amazing. 2mon
  •   birdsofaheather @suzannemckay it was the coolest... from the beach off of the resort, you could walk to that little island. Even the kids! So, for once, I wasn't having panic attacks about the kids in the ocean. Paradise + shallow water = perfect! 2mon
  •   suzannemckay Are you serious?!? That sounds crazy amazing!! Dreamy. And aren't you up super late?! 2mon
  •   birdsofaheather @suzannemckay ha ha! Yes! I should sleep. So much on my mind with the move looming... 2mon
  •   sheandbird You caught a picture of a mermaid! 2mon
  •   cindy_windsor Great photo!! 2mon
  •   birdsofaheather @sheandbird she totally is a mermaid...can't get enough of water. Swimming lessons need to resume soon! @cindy_windsor thanks, girl! 2mon
