We used to keep him in the family room but our teen likes to have it quiet when he studies and I didn't want a parrot that could say "Shut up, Jimmy." ; )
(which by the way, doesn't work)
So now we keep him in the living room where he competes with me when I read aloud. Ugh!
"Guess what is the only thing that will make him be quiet?
When we say:
"Jeeee-sus loves you!" (in a really high pitched voice)
He will usually completely stop his squawk/chirping and its like he's pausing to reflect on that thought for a minute or two. LOL
~It is rather funny to hear people throughout the day getting frustrating and stopping midsentence in their conversations to say "Jeeeee-sus loves you, Jimmy."
Yes, His love is strong even though ours is waning! ; )
