Nearly Wordless Wednesday - Mr. Wiggles


When my girls were small, I explained migration and the return of the robins to the north by making up a story about a little robin named Mr. Wiggles. Each year, we greeted the first robin we saw as "Mr. Wiggles."

Well hello there Mr. Wiggles. I hope he brings with him some warm Spring weather for you soon Aisling. Love the picture, and the memory of the story too.

Robbin, He's probably hoping so too. I imagine the worms are still pretty deep in the cold, frosty ground. Thanks for stopping in for a visit! :)

I saw the very first robin here just this morning! It's always exciting, especially after a winter like we've had. One of my favorite signs of spring, and I like the story you told your kids. :)
