One day, after our picnic lunch, we all laid around watching the birds at the feeder.
Suddenly William was struck with an idea. “Where are you off to?” I asked.
“I think I can lure a bird to me with some bird seed,” he replied.
He waited patiently. No luck.
Then he had another idea. “I need a butterfly net, Mommy.”
William waited patiently with his net to see if he could catch a bird. “I’ve always dreamed of having a pet, Mommy. Today I’m going to catch one for myself.”
He eventually changed his mind. “I’ll try again later…Daddy told me I could probably catch a seagull at the beach if I drop some bread next time I’m there.” Gee, thanks Dax.
