This is for the birds!

We're going for the birds around our house. Well, things are going fine with us but we've been "bird-sitting" for our neighbors. It's been quite interesting to have some new pets around the house. Thankfully our cat Fiona and both of the kids have been intrigued but not intrusive. The birds were named Dora and Diego by our four-year-old neighbor but Emily decided that we should call them Ella and John while they stayed with us.

For more information about kids and pets see my recent article: Good Pets for Young Children on 

The birds go home tomorrow but it's been a fun experience watching them. I wasn't sure about them at first but now I see that birds can be low-maintenance pets that help teach children responsibility and pride of caring for an animal.
