Christmas in April?


Believe it or not, the cardinal is still trying to fly into our windows on our home. 

I can not believe that this cute little bird is stealing my sleep. This bird does not realize that special need families need MORE sleep not less.   I woke up 2 hours earlier than I had to because I could not take the THUMP! THUMP! THUMP! noise- every few minutes.  Honestly my head hurts for this bird.   I decided to do something with my windows. Trial #1– I decided to tape aluminum foil on the inside of the windows.  After securing it I waited.  A few minutes later Tristan woke up.  He came out of his room and into the living room.  He looked and then he smiled. His look was priceless!  I think he thought I had lost my mind.  I feel like I AM losing my mind.  This did not work.  Trial #2–I taped Christmas wrapping paper to the window.  Tristan was intently watching me.  I think it was quite entertaining to him.  If there was a crack of window left uncovered the bird would fly into it.  He found the cracks.  Trial #3–securing all cracks with wrapping paper.  Job completed.

My teenage son arrived home from a sleepover.  He walked in and announced that his mom was crazy!  I agree. It looks bad.   Who else has Christmas wrapping paper in their windows April 26th?

Another healthy dose of laughter from our home!
