“Mom! Owls have 3 to 11 babies. So, can I get 3 to 11 baby owls?
“Can I get an egg?”
I posted this conversation on facebook, and one of my friends who still hadn’t done a pay it forward for 2012 asked if I’d like a couple baby owls. That seemed entirely wonderful. Got me out of knitting more owl babies and yet would probably make Bug ridiculously happy. I asked my friend to address the package to Bug so that she would be the one opening it. Great pictures and fun ensued.
I love the look of surprise and amazement on her face when she figures out what they are. Now she stands with her arms outstretched and the nest of owls resting at her neck, pretending to be a tree. Hours of fun with such simple items.
