Baby Head

First, check out that herd!  Glorious.  Normally we are on fire warming the house because winter is coming.  … but not this year.  Too warm.  Though, I have maintained the “warm room” in case we suddenly drop below double digits.

A mother friend of mine ( three kids, nobel gal ) and I had an exchange.  I forgot something or stumbled and told her, “baby head”  because sometimes with so many lives to raise, you forget things.  Simple things, like the price per kilo of the beef you are selling.  And she told me this, which I hold dear to my heart, ” don’t worry, when the youngest turns six … you get your head back.” … or something like that.  WHAT?!  I get my head back?  For some reason, I thought I was supposed to get my head back when they turn three or four.  SIX?  Are you serious?

Now, I’ve had my head on pretty well, but I must admit, as my youngest turns six in a week, I’m firing on all cylinders.  WAIT!  We can do this!  and then this!  Why haven’t we done that?!  Clear as day. Only partially the way through raising people, lots of experience with the bubbles.  Now trending the tweens and teens.  … Baby Head is a thing of the past.  Now, we need to get these kiddies to be good people.

    That begins on day one. They absorb EVERYTHING from day one.

    Looks like you have been doing an excellent job raising the kids and they look very loved and have great senses of humor. Are the cattle bilingual or only spoken to in American/English?

      Ha! Great question! The cows are bilingual. When Brent calls them through to new grass, he uses English ( ” cow, cow … come on cows ” ). When we need to push them, we use French, “allez!”

      Next year? Turkeys for all in France. They do turkeys, but in parts. We usually construct a Franken-Turkey with the available legs and breast meat. good fun.
