Bye, bye, lovebirds

The lovebirds were very friendly creatures, and loved our heads. Joshua thought it was the coolest thing ever when they landed on him.

Try not to notice that Joshua is wearing nothing but the lovebirds and a diaper. I swear I'm a good mother, and usually dress my kids. We were getting ready for bed!

Here they are on my head, where they spent a lot of time. I thought I was fairly tolerant of the birds. I didn't say anything when they chewed up a stack of bills I needed to pay. Ignored it when they turned the title page of Benjamin's Book of Mormon into their nest. But then they started in on Pride and Prejudice, and it was time for them to go. We gave them away to a good home a few days later. The crazy thing was that they really seemed to like Jane Austen best! Even after I covered the books with a dish cloth, Clyde would pull it off so Bonnie could get back to work on P & P. They had good taste, I'll give them that!

We miss the birds, but I think they will be better off where they are now.

I bet you sure are glad to have the birds gone. Are the kids sad you gave them away?

Hallelujah, the birds are gone! I agree that they have good taste though :)
