I Hope This Doesn’t Mean Our Baby Will Be Flighty…

The theme of our nursery, if we have one at all, is birds. My (Erin) mom is a brilliant artist and she lent her craft to one of the walls of the nursery. Enjoy!

  1. That looks great! Baby Vore has a very stylish room to live in!! I must say that I’m pleased that we have some of Mrs. Beers’s masterpieces in our home as well!

  2. During close examination of your photos, I noticed that there is four outlet electrical receptacle at the base of the tree. It doesn’t appear to be either a tamper resistant receptacle (best) or a receptacle with the child safety plugs (ok, but the kids sometimes pull them out and eat them).

  3. I don’t understand this comment.

    Is she saying that she thinks an exposed electrical outlet, which happens to present a serious safety risk for your unborn child, is gorgeous?

    Why is no one taking this threat seriously?

  4. Mike, we want our baby to grow up a realist. Everything about that wall is symbolic. The birds are happy in their bird utopia, while the happy-looking worms (who have eyes, but no mouth–surely they’d be frowning?) are being plucked from the ground, and just in case our baby doesn’t get the message that it’s a dangerous world, we’ve got an electrical outlet as a reminder. I’m 99% sure it will be covered by the time baby arrives. It also may be exchanged for a dark brown cover for extra sneakiness.
