See this bird's nest? It used to hold the prettiest wooden eggs that I painstakenly painted and speckled with my own little hands.
See this birdhouse? It was sitting on the shelf directly below the bird's nest. Note that there is only one point of entry or exit from the bird house.
See this little hand? It belongs to my 20-month old who discovered that all my pretty speckled eggs fit perfectly into the hole in the bird house.
My four-year old claims that the bird house also now contains a kleenex, a small plastic screwdriver and a tube of chapstick.
And so goes the process of making my home pretty while living with little boys.
