Childhood is... (includes linky)

Learning to care for sick birds and learning that sometimes they do die

This has to be one of my favourite snaps - and that's Dad's hand by the way

Elijah was so careful but the bird was just too sick

When he died Elijah asked Dad to put a plaster on him - very cute but the poor bird is still lying in the garden waiting for the fairies to whisk him away.  Elijah had thought that a plaster would make him feel better.  Thoughtful.

Want to link up and share your story about what childhood means to you?  Each week I put up a linky tool for you to link up.  It can be anything really - a single photo, a poem, a short story even or just a memory.
