Baby Boot Camp
The call came and I was happy to see who was calling, a daughter. "No matter what I say these kids are not listening. They are driving me crazy and will not mind." It was a sound of a worn out and very pregnant Mom. " Meet me at the farm and I will take them and give you a weekend off," I replied. "A little Baby Boot Camp with Papa?" she said. I hoped the shirts would still fit that I had printed with the Baby Boot Camp logo . It is nice to have the pleasure of their company, knowing at all extremes they would be happy to see their parents in a few days, and I would take a deep breath and remember the fun we had. The colors are out and my back forty full of tall grasses and beautiful trees for us to explore. I had a huge box of books and goodies I had acquired since I last had them so it would be fun to spoil them rotten. We started at a favorite malt shop, having malts, onion rings and assorted pie to share. On the way home a huge flock of gulls appeared and seemed to be coming out of the clouds nonstop as I drove down the highway. Perhaps 5-10,000 birds easily lasting for over a mile. The just kept adding on to the flock and I was truly amazed. I have seen some good sized flocks, but this was by far the largest. I pointed them out and was met with a look that said what the heck, birds. Well, sometimes it grabs them. My happiness floated off on a gentle prairie breeze for all to enjoy. I hope you felt it.
And of course how could it be a complete weekend without this baby, Lily.
