I'm Glad I Have Boys!!!

I know that one day, sooner than I probably think, they're going to be taking care of me! Why am I so confident? Because it's already started!

This morning, I walked into the sunroom toward the door to go outside. Then I stopped dead in my tracks. Just outside the door was a little bird, who had obviously had an up close encounter with the windows and now lay dead on the patio.

Now, I'm not a wimpy kind of person. However, I do not touch dead animals. I actually went as far as to get a hockey stick to see if maybe I'd be able to push the bird into a garbage bag. AGH! No, I couldn't even do that.

So what's a mommy to do? Enlist the help of my 4 year old!

Brady had absolutely no trouble doing this.

So glad to have boys in the house!!

In other news, Nate has been doing really well. We're halfway through the antibiotics and he doesn't seem to be too bothered by the pneumonia at this point. He's very happy to be outside, playing with his brother, going for walks and swinging at the park. Still no news from his cardiologist about what's going to happen next. Hopefully we hear soon, although for the time being, we're enjoying just living in the moments!

I can handle dead birds - no problem there, but spiders - now that's another story!! Although I try hard not to show my fear, so that my boys also will help me out when I need a spider taken care of!
Happy to hear Nate's doing so well! PTL!!!
Have a great Easter gathering this weekend!

Yup, I can identify with this too! I'm so glad that even now at the age my boys are they have never make fun of my asking for their help with 'bugs','rodents' & their carcusses. Yuch!
