Arturo and I may not currently have any children, but that doesn’t mean we’re a family of just two. We’re the proud, happy owners of two little ones of the feathered variety: Pepper, a cockatiel, an Sunshine, and English budgie.
I haven’t yet mentioned our parrots on our blog, which was partially intentional. As much as we love both Sunshine and Pepper and cherish their birdly company, they are just pets, and this blog is about something much more important: our quest to become the parents of two precious children. However, our birds nonetheless are a very important part of our daily life. I work from home, and Pepper is my company through long days spent in my upstairs office. Sunshine and Pepper both accompany us throughout our evening chores, perched on our shoulders as we clean and cook. And they both entertain us endlessly with their antics.
While they are far from children, we do love our parrots dearly. I took a few particularly cute photos of them while we were taking photographs of the silent auction items several weeks ago, and I couldn’t resist sharing these shots.
I can’t wait till our real children meet our feathered “children”!
