Surprise!

Image hosting by PhotobucketI got parakeets for Ethan and Cameron! Cameron has been asking for birds since last year. He did not understand why Santa didn't bring him birds for Christmas despite the fact that we were celebrating Christmas 3 states away from home. So when a friend of a friend was looking for someone to give her bird and cage to, I asked to take it off her hands. But I have two boys, so Ethan and I took a trip to the pet store and added a blue parakeet to the yellow one. Cameron was so excited when he came home and saw his new friends. He's been working hard at getting the bird to sit on his finger. Cameron has also promised to clean the cage and feed the birds. But I know the truth. I just added more poop to my cleaning all messes in my home.

Image hosting by PhotobucketOh well, it's worth it when I see my little blonde boy soaking up the feathered goodness. I took this picture through the window without Cameron's knowledge. I love watching my boy's when they don't know I'm there. This little guy is such a visual person. He soaks everything in. If he doesn't understand something he will ask question after question until he has it all laid out in his mind. And so now, his new obsession is parakeets. I'm actually relieved. Because I was about to tear out my front flower bed to give him the butterfly garden he has been obsessing over last week. I saved myself yard work, but now I have poop work. You know, I think poop is a word I should try to use more in my blog. After all, I deal with a lot of poop in my mothering.


I came across this website from a message board, my heritage. You can submit a picture of yourself and it will tell you what celebrities you look like. Okay, I know I'm not the prettiest of women, but I was feeling brave enough to give this a try. John had just taken a picture of me, so I plugged this shot in. Image hosting by Photobucket Here's what their little face recognition program said:
75% - Rene Russo! Image hosting by Photobucket Yes! You are telling me I look 75% like a model turned actress? I can't believe it! I'm beautiful. And Rene starred in a movie with Pierce Bronson. My Pierce. I must be so pretty, because computers are always right!


70% - Ralph Waldo Emerson Image hosting by PhotobucketHuh? Okay, there must be a little glitch in the system. Because I can't look like Rene one minute and then Ralph the other. Let's continue.


67% - Edward Said
63% - Sergei Prokofiev Okay, there's a bigger glitch. Quite possibly a bug because apparently the computer isn't receiving the proper female input. Although I am frightened to observe that my nose looks a lot like the last 3 men.


62% - Yoko Ono Image hosting by Photobucket What the?!! How can this stupid computer lift me up and then push me down. I DO NOT look like Yoko! I look like the model/actress Rene! Jimminy crickets people, you need to check that computer to make sure it's spitting out the correct information! Rene, NOT Yoko!


61% - Annette Bening Image hosting by Photobucket Well, I'm so glad the programmers at your site have started to take their job seriously. I do look a lot like Annette don't I? It's something about the eyes. Yes and the flawless complexion. I totally see it. I feel so good about myself!


60% - John Wayne Image hosting by Photobucket Crap. It's official. I have a man's nose.
