Since I spoil the birds constantly, I chose not to get a physical wrapped gift for Mika this year. This is partly due to the fact that both my boys have an overabundance of new toys still, so they don't need any more (nor do I have the space to store more!), and I'll be purchasing them Expandable Habitats cages for when we move to the house early next year.
But, of course, being the kind of mommy I am I still ended up getting something - something that is on it's way and will be a combined birthday gift for both Mika and Raptor, whose birthday is on the 25th of this month. I got this medium Java tabletop stand to go in the future master bedroom. I really love this stand because it's got a lot of branches for perching AND it's got a nice empty space on the left to hang a small boing, or swing, from the top branch. This will save me from hanging stuff from the master bedroom ceiling, something my bf said I could do but really doesn't want me to. ;) Yes, I know how to compromise. Hehe. I'm hoping to fall in love with one or two more tabletop stands by the time I set up the bird room and then I'll be set.
We wanted to take the boys out for a nice picnic at a park for Mika's birthday today but 1. the bf came down with a high fever yesterday, 2. I'm not feeling so great, and 3. it's doom-and-gloom outside anyway. So Mika has been having the run of the house, as usual. I gave him his favorite sprouts (mixed with that stuff he doesn't like called fruits and veggies) and yummy Avian Organics bird bread, which he tore up.
Happy bird-day, my baby. I love you so much and hope to celebrate many more birthdays with you. I don't know what I'd do without you. <3
