Tree Little Birds
Our cherry tree is full of fledglings all making crazy demands of their mothers who are continuously feeding their loud, little beaks. Such is motherhood, we are always working to fill the needs of our little birds. My own little fledgling was up all night with a fever. Cool, wet wash cloths and lemon balm tea in tiny sips filled my night. It's amazing to me that my husband can sleep straight through it. Mothers are so dialed in to their children. One little whimper and we're up to check on them. Another day home from school. She's finally resting but those poor robins will be busy all day!
