When you jump the fence to someones property to grab bits from a tree for your birds and your chased out by the not so friendly dog you disturbed in the process

When poop and seed are just part of your new dress style

When you tell everybody at work that they ARE NOT allowed to throw away any finished toilet rolls and brown boxes.

When your grocery trolley is full of the kids food and you check if there is change left for your own food.

When you have to buy a second fridge for your milk and cheese because the other one is full of the kids food.

When you start cutting up your own furniture to make space for the kids houses.

When you employ a full time maid to take care of the kids while you are at work.

When....when...when... OMG I can write pages full!

(I dont know how my hubby copes with me.)

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

When your taking the children on a hike and end up coming home with a bundle of branches under your arm - the kids even bring branches and newspaper to school for me and want to be rewarded for good behaviour by giving rosie a shower with the mist bottle - lol

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

LOL I love these.....

When relatives you only speak to every couple of weeks say: How's things? You then reel off your parrots latest acheivement to be met with: "Well, I sort of meant you and Dave....y'know, your husband....?"

When your Facebook status' get no replies anymore *cough*

When a customer says: Pardon? and it wasn't ME that made a noise......

When you find daft things around the house and in the shed and think: Hmmmm....maybe I could use this for Cal.....

When you visit friends and families with human children and A) Find yourself thinking YOUR baby is SO much more advanced than their 4 month old child :P hahaha! and B) Ask where they got that sturdy looking teether from because it'd be just the job! (and then proceed INTO a baby shop where the cashier will invariably ask you how old your lil one is and is it a girl and a boy. Then understandably looking at you as if you're crackers when you reply.....)

You know you have a manic "furry and feathered family" like mine when you spend most of meal times cooking varying types of veg and witheringly looking at your husband when he questions this and saying: It's only Moo, who likes raw carrot? And please, put the lid back on that bowl because Cal and Boots prefer theirs warm - Olly's is in that dish over there(he doesn't like it warm). You then ignore your husbands own grumbling stomach for a few minutes

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

Hahaha I love it - edit- I didn't read the second page before I wrote this....

1. when you raid the local neighbourhood at night with a pair of secateurs so you can give your girls fresh native tree flowers
2. when you inspect every fallen branch you see that may be good for the cage or a playgym.
3 When you have a box that everyone in the house has to put ice-cream sticks, plastic bottle tops, egg cartons, toilet rolls or anything else that might be useful as a foraging toy..... and if you see any of those items in the bin Watch Out!!
4. When your family start eating the bread you made with great excitement that you baked something only to find its for the birds and has egg shells in it.
5When your birds eat better than everyone else in the house

Re: You know you're a Parront when...

-When the first thing you do in the morning is go get your coffee, and log onto Parrotforums.

I had another one, but I forgot it. I'll edit this when I remember.
