I’m surprised those teacups were successful–congrats on some cute bird feeders there. Hope the birds do not poop all over your porch now.

Kat May 1, 2013 at 3:10 pm

Yeah do you like how I was lecturing him on NOT cutting corners as I was using tape to hang a tea cup by a string? Haha! Nice mom.

Jenny May 1, 2013 at 8:06 am

Those are so cute. Your birds and the bees talk was awesome ;)

Kat May 1, 2013 at 3:11 pm

He seems to know all he needs to know!

Jen May 1, 2013 at 9:37 am

I love the look he gives you when you are talking… I get that same look.

Kat May 1, 2013 at 3:11 pm

All is fair in love and war though…I give them the same look when they’re talking. ;)

Darcy May 1, 2013 at 12:05 pm

S..E….LL haha loved that. Also those are cute birdfeeders.

Kat May 1, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Haha! Not that it matters…he can’t spell.

Marta May 1, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Those are adorable and you’re too crafty – you’re making me look bad!

Jenn May 1, 2013 at 8:28 pm

Brilliant. I’ve been on a hunt for “stuff to build” for both of my youngins, especially for summer break.

Anything to keep them away from ipads!!!!!

They both started developing myopia two years ago. Through a friend of a friend connected with Alex & the Frauenfeld Clinic. He helped get my kids back from -1.50 glasses to 20/20 – with the caveat that I have to limit the amount of time they spend up-close.

So now whenever it’s school break time, I can’t just let them play computer games. It’s so easy to run out of activities, when all their peers are living on Facebook and the cursed multi player games on Apple’s platform. Argh.

The bird feeder should keep them occupied for quite a while. Thanks for that idea!!!

(And if your kids get myopic, look up Frauenfeld Clinic on Google. Priceless, Alex’ eye health insights!)

Very cool craft. Especially for those of us who are glue gun challenged.

Sandee Harned May 2, 2013 at 8:21 am

Super cute!

Nicole @ When Did I Become My Mom May 2, 2013 at 3:40 pm

I love your teacup birdfeeder! And how long exactly have I been gone?! Look how big he grown! Enough exclamation points now. :/

Jenn @ Coolest Family on the Block May 5, 2013 at 9:33 am

I was so excited when I saw the little birdie eating the birdseed (I apparently and easily excited), I think it’s because I was expecting it to come crashing to the ground (so I apparently have no faith in your…or at least not in the tape).
We used to have a birdfeeder in our yard, things got crazy and birds started coming from everywhere and it looked like a Hitchcock movie in our yard…we ran out of a giant bag of seed in less than a week! That was the end of that.

This just made my day. Hope all those birds you attract don’t bite him. I need to tell you that my 13-year-old’s hair still looks exactly like that. :-)
