"A bird! A real bird is flying around out kitchen!" I stammered, while the girls nervously giggled.
"Mommy made me scream!" Bella laughed.
"What? How did a bird get in our kitchen?" David was already headed to the kitchen to have a look as I ushered the three children into their bedroom and told them to keep their door shut. We were all giggling at this point!
Sure enough, a sparrow was flying around our kitchen, perching on top of our cabinets. (Apparently, the little birdie who enjoyed sitting in our Christmas wreath on our front door flew inside our house, while we were loading up the car before running our errands. What a sneaky little fella!) David had me close the doors to all the other rooms, while he figured out a way to catch the bird. I don't know who was more nervous about the situation, me or the bird! ha ha!
Luckily, we have a decorative tree in our kitchen. After what seemed like a long time-but it was really only 5 minutes- the bird sat in the tree. David slowly picked up the entire tree and took it out to our back deck. David saved the day! My hero!!!
ps- And if you were wondering, yes, that naughty bird did leave a few 'treasures' in our house. YUCK! wink. Below are a few pictures of the girls, building silly hats! Have a great weekend!
