Made by two kids, fit for a bird

The box containing a little birdhouse kit arrived last week. Now, it’s no secret that I’m not a huge bird fan, but I do like the build things, and I knew that the kids would love it too. The explanatory email from Graco sealed the deal. I may not like birds, but I can’t resist a contest!

I won’t lie to you. I did consider building the thing on the sly and decorating it behind the children’s backs. I just knew it would be… neater if I did it. But what can I say. I must love my kids more than winning, because as hard as it was to let go, I gave them free reign to decorate at will. OK, well maybe not free reign, but almost. Come on! I tried! And it’s not like I went back to fix their design after they went to take a bath. Well, not much. OK. I’m pathetic. But my kids are cute, and their birdhouse turned out… well, you tell me.

They painted.
Little L got in on the action too.
Even though it was a bit of a stretch for her.
And she kept having to beg for “more” paint.
C was adamant that the inside also be painted.
You know, so the birds would like it more.
And there you have it!
A clean girl and a finished birdhouse!
A proud, clean girl!
And one gorgeous birdhouse.

Now go forth and vote! And may the best birdhouse win! (Voting opens May 30th)
