It's a miracle!

I have been waiting for this day for close to a week now. Remember the bird nest I blogged about? In case you missed, you can check it out here and here. Go ahead, I'll wait.

We finally have baby birds in that nest. The babies are big enough to be seen when they stretch their necks. I have been tying to take a picture of their cute, fuzzy heads and yesterday I finally captured the moment.

As I was planning the post out in my head, a miracle happened. I think I may have died and gone to heaven. Delayed rapture? I'm not sure, but whatever the reason, I made sure to document that moment. Who knows when, or if, it will happen again.

Sunday night while I was once again scrubbing the dirt off Little Dude, I made a joke about him having to wash the kitchen floor. Surprisingly, he appeared interested in this idea. But I'm not dumb. I didn't actually expect a 5 year old boy to voluntarily wash a kitchen floor.

<---That looks like a kid who loves to clean right? Last night when we returned from the playground, my boy went straight to the kitchen for a snack (the non-stop-eating teenage years scare the bejeebus out of me!). As he was reaching for a pack of crackers and cheese, he paused and turned to me. "Mom? When can I wash the floor?" I don't think I have ever gathered cleaning supplies faster than I did at that moment. Hell to the yes you can clean my floor!!

And not only did he wash the floor, but he also dried it!

I love my boy!

And no, you can't have him!

Am I missing the picture of the baby birds, or did you leave them out?

And YAY for kids that like to clean!!

I'm looking forward to seeing baby birds, but in the meantime, do your hire your son out for cleaning? LOL

I am so jealous of the clean floor.

And, you are right to be scared of the non-stop teenage eating. It is terrifying.

I am so impressed the little dude cleaned - and dried - your floors! Since we can't have him, will you at least loan him out? ;)

My floor could use some TLC! You are one lucky mama (but you already knew that!).

I told my friend tonight I am going to buy a swifter duster thing and strap it to my kittens back so that when he runs around my house acting like a nut case at least he'll be doing something other than breaking my stuff!!

that's pretty cool. i'm so impressed that your son was eager to do this. and that says something about your parenting skills that he would WANT to do that. go you!
