she loves mama birds ....




This couldn't have happened at a more appropriate time ... two mama birds have decided to nest around my home ... we have one in the front and one in the back by our kitchen window... when I showed my boys yesterday they were super excited .... we are patiently waiting for them to have babies ... my 8 year old quickly stated " mommy, the birds are here because you use birds in your jewelry and they know its safe here...." it was one of those ah ha moments for me ... because it shows how much what i do has an impact on there little lives... . I really had no idea how close attention they pay to my jewelry .... but it makes me happy as my son sees me as an artist which I have a hard time seeing myself as sometimes... he also told me recently that when he grows up if he doesn't make the NBA he would like to be an artist like me .... so I introduce Ethan Quinn my new blossoming artist ... he asked me to share his recent art piece because he said "i will be famous then too mommy , like you.... your kinda like Leonard Di Vinci... " well, hmmm not really... but in his eyes I am ..... and that is why I love being a mom. Being a hero to someone so small everyday makes my life complete and makes me very happy , full of love and joy ! And teaching my children that they can have wings to fly to follow there dreams ..... just like the mamma bird will do when those babies come......so with that being said I want to wish a
happy mothers day to all the sweet mama birds out there!!!
xo,
beth

Oh Beth how sweet!!It still amazes me when people call me an artist!
I remember my children saying to me that when they grow up they didn't want a real job, they wanted to be an artist like me.
Not sure whether to be thrilled they called me an artist or upset that they didn't think it was a real job! lol
I think perhaps your budding artist was right, those Mummy birds came to the right place!

Hello sweet Beth - oh what a precious post this is! I love the way your son views his Mama. I'm sure you wrote down what he said to you. And it will be treasured always.

Wishing you a very Happy Mother's Day!

Blessings,

We had a nest of four fluffy blue jay babies in late May and now we have a robin and her nest near our back door. I agree with your son, they feel safe here....
