Well... they are gone. Just like that our birds are gone!
Rylan was peeking at the last one just this morning before we left for school!! I'm not really sure if he was peeking or "helping" the last two leave the nest prematurely. All I know is that they were getting too big for the nest... and I went out to see the last two birds that Rylan was telling me about and there was nothing but an empty nest. That was quick.
I am reading a book, yes... me... reading. Not a common thing for me to want to go buy a book and sit and read. I would rather be playing a game of Blocked or Mine Sweeper or heck, I'd rather jog ten miles in a desert than sit and read. :) For now... I am reading the book The Birth Order: Why You Are the Way You Are. LOL It just makes me laugh to think about because some of the things covered in the book are right on. Brian and I both are the "babies" of our families... so, the book even covers the topic of "when both parents are the last born"... or "when both parents are the first born"... so it's great. It helps me understand some things about my children... and helps me understand my siblings and my parents also (who, by the way, are two first borns). My much older sister has always said that I was such a "bratty little sister." Now why would she say that?
What is she talking about? Me... bratty???
After all... according to the author, Dr. Kevin Leman, the last born in the family is usually:
...."charming, an attention seeker (this is where the pics above come in), tenacious, blames others (who me?), affectionate, loves surprises, people person, precocious"...
Here's to all you "last born babies" out there!!
