once upon at time, there was a little bird that lived in a bird cage. everyday, the little bird would look out the birdcage and see a huge tree that grew bigger and bigger. the little bird wanted nothing more than to fly up to the very top of the tree, because the bird was sure that from way up there he would be able to see the whole world.
next to the tree was a little house and in that house lived a little boy. one day, the little boy was climbing the tree, when all of a sudden he heard the little bird tweeting from the bird cage. the little boy waved at the bird and said 'hi little nice bird - i really wish that you could see the amazing view from up here. i can see the whole world.
when the boy climbed down the tree he noticed that there was a little key hanging from underneath the bird cage. the boy took the key and unlocked the door to the bird cage. as soon as the door opened, the little bird flew out of the cage and straight to the top of the tree. and just as the little bird had imagined, it could see the whole world from up there. now the little bird had everything it wanted and it lived happily ever after.
it has long been chewed and destroyed but it remains in my head from night after night when i would read the story to my new born baby staring up at me.
i love those little memories we have... usually both very sleepy after a long feed and staring at each other in the light of the moon, streaming in through our bedroom window. all very distant now however, as she seems to never stop for a moment. talking and singing, counting and laughing... a non stop little whirlwind of happiness. making plenty of new memories now. my not so little girl.
there was another amazing cot mobile that i came across, one so beautiful i still think about it to this very day... like a guilty secret or a 'bit on the side'... maybe for number two? i heart all things klt so will blog more about their fabulous prints at another time... keep your peepers peeled...
