For the birds…

“Little One, when we fly to the US to visit Pa and Grandma next month, how many planes will we take?”


“That’s right! Very good! Where will the first plane fly to?”


“Ummm… Sweetie, that would be Paris.”

“Ok, Mommy. Parrots.”

He giggles. She sighs.



  1. I could have sworn you were flying through Berdlin.

  2. Haven’t been to parrots in years… sigh.

  3. We’ll always have parrots…

    Sorry, couldn’t resist.

  4. Hi Liza,
    This reminds me of a few years ago when I was living and working in Holland. We took our Children to Disney for a short break, my then 3 year old son was mortified when Winnie the pooh head fell off but recovered quickly saying

    ‘he’ll be okay Dad because he eats honey and honey is good for you!’

    ‘Very True’ but thought not quite good enough to recover from decapitation.

    Just wanted to let you know that a Link to your website (and supporting image) has been added to The Expat Directory. Here is the URL location where we have added the link on our site: and also

    I will send you an email with the full details but wanted to share this memory, not as cute as parrots but fun.

  5. LOL – I love the Little One!

  6. Yay, Parrots!

  7. Did you always talk about it previously in English or Hebrew? ‘Cos you could have said “Turkey”, and maybe he heard “Tooki”.

    Or something.

    (Yes, i know it’s a stretch.:-s)

  8. What kind of accent does he have in English?

  9. Just make sure it ain’t be a dead parrot 😉

  10. Liza, I saw your comment at Sandmonkey’s and followed you home! Another American mom in the Middle East, eh? Just across the Jordan 🙂

    Arik had my first thought…MP!

    My kids used to say “Germ-ny”, where you get sick, and called Frankfurt the hotdog city. Dontcha just love expat kids?

    And, I would also not want ten either! Quiver is quite full at four.

    I hope to visit again!

  11. ha, ha! I just love Parrots in the springtime. 🙂
