This morning Paige called me to the back window and we watched two hummingbirds at our feeder. . .Do you see it?? Kind of above the feeder and to the left. He looks like a sweet, innocent hummingbird, but I wish my picture-taking abilities weren't so poor so you could see the rest of the story.
It took a minute to realize that we had a hummingbird bully in our midst. He was being quite territorial and not letting the other hummingbird have a sip of the syrupy, sugary, red-koolaid looking stuff in the feeder. I wanted to yell at it and say
"Hey!! Mr. Flutterbritches! Who do you think you are!! We share around this house!!! You better let your hummingbird friend have something to eat too!!!!
Then I remembered I just purchased the book Scream Free Parenting by Hal Runkel and that wouldn't be the "cool" parenting thing to do. I kind of felt like it's momma because I am providing nourishment for it in the form of a sugary snack which is what I do with my 2 legged children; and technically I haven't read the book yet, only the intro so I could yell. I told Buster a.k.a. husband that I was going to read this book. He thought it would take all the fun out of parenting if we couldn't yell.
