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

When you are away from home all day working and when you call home and no one answers, your first thought is not, Gee, where is my spouse or my son?" (Kat is out of town) but rather, "Gee, I hope the birds are okay."

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

YES, the carrot top deal!! As I was browsing the produce stand for excellent sources of yummies for Maui to try, the cashier had actually started to cut the tops off, I came running up and saying "NO, NO, NO" very loudly, poor guy, he must have thought I was NUTZ! I did explain, I'm sorry, but the only reason I even get my carrots here is for the tops , See my baby LOVES them, and they're so good for him too.

Then realizing, I'd better explain that I"m talking about my baby BIRD! LOL

Spot on Bobby, my previous avatar pic, Mishka was climbing through steel rings. The loop is a big big while plastic one .

Will change my avatar pic back to the rings.
Barbara you are only half

Told the teacher, class burst out laughing, and I got detention for lying. It wasn't until mum came to school with me to see the principal with a pile of shredded paper that anyone actually believed me.

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

When your landlord remarks how lovely all the sunflowers look in the garden and you just think to yourself rather out there than in my bird
( hense why there there as I remove them all from
my old boys food and chuck them in the garden )

He does love eating the petals from them though so I hope there not bad for him

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

You know you're a parront when you ask your husband to pass you a pack of baby bottle brushes in the shop and further confuse him by saying: The pink ones...duh!

How was he to know what they were for?!

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

LOL Ben!

Or when your kitchen smells of Sunday roast because you've been cooking veg at mid day!


EDIT: I forgot my ultamite one for this weekend! I was speaking to my mum on Saturday and explaining how we're going to buy a harness for Cal. She's 68 this month and was like....erm....well....whatever makes you happy. Why Ma? She's going to love it! I'm sure she will darling, but I didn't think you had any aspirations to be a Pirate.....

Oh MUM! ha!

Or simply looks like a twister went through it ....I'm a messy cook lol

There are also times when I spend so long making their breakfast, I think I have eaten and I forget to eat my own breakfast. I get to uni...."dam, I did it again! I'm so hungry!" hehe. I found the trick is to eat bits of the F&V while your cutting it up, at least its healthy

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

haha! I told Dave we must start teaching Cal "pieces of 8"

Another one.....

This weekend we had a "movie Sunday" and FINALLY watched Avatar (I know, we're in the stone age! But we work a staggering 72 hr week lol) We decided to treat ourselves with pizza and popcorn. I had Cal SITTING on my pizza before I had a chance to give her any and I had to make her her own popcorn as I found her edging over to an open bag of Sweet Popcorn! lol!

So, you know you're a parront when your fid stomps all over your pizza and you STILL eat it lol.
