Just Ducky!

While John and I were away this past week, the Mallard eggs we rescued from our dogs three weeks ago hatched. So beside looking after the cat, the dogs and the chicks, Julie became the proud mother of two ducklings. Her reaction on Saturday morning when they were one and two days old?

"Mom, I'm exhausted. I'm never having children if this is what it's like!"

Not to worry Julie....I have a feeling the ducklings were far more time consuming.

They seem to take right to it.
