Have you ever watched a Kid nurse?
This morning I had to make a bottle and get Small some breakfast. As I as doing this, Zombie was jabbing his pointy nose into the back of my knee as hard as he can. It isn' the most pleasant of feelings. It's a little distracting.
All 3 of the boys are on Spring Break next week. Good chance for me to go work on the farm. However this morning I realized that I will have to take Zombie with us, he has to have a bottle in the middle of the day. And I really don't want to drive the hour plus it takes to get t the homestead from the farm. He is starting to eat solids, which he announces doesn't feel real groovy coming out. . . The poor goat, he is going to have an identity crisis. Is he goat? (who doesn't want him) a dog (that mostly ignores him or bum rushes him from out of nowhere) or a human? (who he follows around and gets fed from)
It has been warm enough for him to go outside and stay outside. His back knees curl in to touch, his rump curls in and he shivers as though it is freezing outside. And just like a toddler you leave at the babysitter, he cries for a while. You just have to walk away. It hurts, but yu are not a bad mother because of it (remember hearing that?)
