That's what the girls called her.
(an early morning check out the dining room window)
We were all excited on Mother's Day that her nest was finally done and she was sitting on her beautiful blue eggs.
The girls watched her build her nest from our kitchen window for a week.
They were overjoyed that mama robin picked our tree. And just outside the window. Perfect.
We peeked (but didn't touch) on Mother's Day.
And there was even one more egg the next day.
And we waited and waited. While she waited and waited.
But then Mama robin stopped coming back and her eggs never hatched. So sad for my girls.
The little miracles in spring... they have their ups and downs in nature just like we do. But we'll take the good that we can from each experience and love all that this spring is... all the ups, all the downs, and every little blue egg in between.
