Baby Bird Motherhood Cliche on Our Porch in Bay Head, New Jersey

Rex, London, Maddie and I are out enjoying the evening on our screened in porch in Bay Head, New Jersey, and checking up on our newest neighbors. Three baby birds (I think they're robins) hatched on Thursday morning in a nest in the cherry tree right next to our porch. I was admiring them and hoping to take a picture for the blog, and Maddie remarked, "You love them as if they were yours!" London said, "What will you do when they fly away?" I told them it wouldn't be half as hard for me as it will be when London and Maddie fly away to college...but hey, I've got another 12 years!

I know you'll make the most of these 12 years. Man, for me those years went by FAST. Poof! They were gone. Now all my four are OUT of college, believe it or not. One stayed in Scottsdale, one in Cincinnati, and two are in Toledo, but now I'm moving away. Life changes a lot when they are full grown. But it continues to be fun and interesting with the kids, it's just in a much different way.
Have fun with your kids. I love their names, BTW.

It's just too easy to get attached to any babies. Birds, humans or otherwise. And you really do miss them when it's time to let 'em go.
