Some of us are more maternal than others. I love being a mom but can't imagine having more than 1 or 2 children. How do you find the time, energy and all the other stuff that you need to be a mom when you have more than 2? I suppose God knows what he's doing when he gives more (or less) children to some, although I'm wondering what He was thinking when he gave Octomom her last litter. I know I shouldn't have typed this. Oh well, I'll pretend I'm Twittering and this is what came to mind.
The reason I brought this up really has nothing to do with humans at all. It has to do with my goats. I know that comes as a huge surprise to most of you. Yes, I have goats on the brain. It could be worse, no?
As I told you 2 posts ago, we sold Polly's twins and she was very upset about it. That left us with one baby, Clifford, who belongs to Strawberry. Or does he? Today I think Polly adopted Clifford and Clifford adopted Polly. He's been following her everywhere and she's letting him. She's even letting him nurse. Tonight I may have to milk all the does because I don't know how much milk Clifford is taking and from who. Strawberry doesn't even seem to care that Polly is mothering her son. I think if she was human she would be single with no children. Not everyone was meant to be a mother.
