You know you need to clean more often...

when you find a birds nest in your kids bedroom!


Saturday I decided to clean Abigails room. I mean REALLY clean it. I decided to take everything out of her room to sweep and mop the floors, wash the walls and give it a full spring cleaning.

As I was moving Ab's Stuffed Animal tree out of her room I noticed that there was a thick pile of leaves stuck between the wall and the tree, I was about to yell at Abigail (yet again) when I realized there were A LOT of leaves and that they were all stuck together. BRAVELY I used my broom to knock them to the floor, and this is when I noticed it was a nest. A little internet research and I learend it was a Carolina Wrens next. Luckily there were no birds or eggs in it!

The nest was relocated to a safe location and I spent Saturday afternoon DISINFECTING Abigails room. She is now happily playing and sleeping in a newly cleaned and bird(and nest) free room!

Wow, how did the birds manage to built a nest in there? What a great find, but not so great in having to disinfect the room!

That is amazing that they built a nest in there. At first I thought maybe it was something she found and hid in the corner. Looks great now!
