Because we live on a farm my kids have a distinct advantage to other 'regular' kids when it comes to baby critters...
They know that their mother is a impulse buyer.
Not at the department store, nor at the grocery store like most folks...
No, I have little impluse control at the feed store!
Let me introduce you to my first impulse buy of the week...
Meet Ollie...he is a 6 week old Lionhead bunny. He is as soft as you can imagine...he is adorable and I'm completely smitten.
Hi Ollie...I love you.
There was a storm blowing in when I took these pictures...Ollie is all lovely and windblown.
I do not look all lovely when I'm windblown...no I just look all disheveled and well...windblown. How fair is that I ask!
Anyway that was the first adoption of the week.
Here is our second...
Hey Baby what ya lookin' at?
Wook mama...baby ducks!
I see, what are you gonna name them?
Yes, Bob the builder, Muck, and Scoop!
Ahhhh I see, you know Muck and Scoop are great names for ducks because you have to do that a lot with them.
Never mind...nice names.
This week's list
- 1 rabbit
- 1 turkey
- 5 ducklings
- 5 chicks
Yes I'm a sucker for those cute little babies they have in those troughs at the feed store!
Oh yeah...I also ordered 10 more turkeys and a few runner ducks and am planning a bigger rabbit hutch!
So they know not to ask for candy or toys but ask mama for another animal and your chance are pretty good that you'll get what you want.
Well unless it is for a baby camel...don't need another one of those thank you very much!
Welcome to the funny farm little one...I'm sure you'll never be lonely here!
I'm over at Not Dabbling in Normal discussing girls and media and body image.
