My body sighed, as if a sense of complete and utter relief had come across me. It was a funny feeling, and though unusual to me, I am sure it is an experience that many parents have had while raising their children.
I had spent the past 42 days watching an Anna’s Hummingbird nest, starting before the two M&M-sized eggs hatched to the day the young fledged, and began their adult lives. I realized the day they left how attached and captivated I had become, realizing how on edge I was during the entire time spent watching them grow.
