We raised 40 chickens two years ago and Nick figured it was time to do it again. He forgot to tell me the part about having to pick them up, unpack them, and care for them myself this week.
If you've every wondered what it is like to hang heatlamps from the garage rafters, unpack 100 chicks and teach them to drink, trying not to step on them, while having a baby strapped to your back, I'll tell you, IT IS DIFFICULT! But I'm a stronger woman because of it!
In other news, I've officially diagnosed Blaine as emotionally unstable! LOL. He just cries hysterically every single time he is upset with a situation. Examples: Mommy is driving and baby is in carseat. Mommy is making dinner and gives baby trucks and tractors (his favorite) to play with. Mommy is doing dishes and trying to have baby eat a snack. Mommy goes shopping and puts baby in shopping cart. Mommy takes baby to park and tries to have baby go in swing. Bathtime is over and Mommy takes baby out of tub to dress him.
Every single situation above (and then some) leads to hysterics. That kid knows how to throw a temper tantrum and he's only 10 months old!! The future is going to be a challenge for sure!
