Saturday Cutie





Well since I completely grossed everyone out with the whole mechanical chicken ordeal. I figured I might redeem myself by showing you a cutie picture of my baby. He will argue that he not no longer a baby but a man- well a 9 year old man to be sure, but a man in his eyes. To me his sappy sentimental mother he will always be a baby as well as my 15, and 14 year old.

Speaking of the 14 and 15 year old - dear mom is having complex issues on facing reality that they are growing up. They have been hunting and working cattle most of their life with their dad, but now they are venturing out on their own to go coon, coyote, and basically roaming the mountains at night with their teenage buddies most of the weekend nights. I know this summer this will probably become a nightly routine. But for me I always think of bear, coyotes, Sasquatch - well you get the picture. If their is something that can go wrong I can probably imagine it. Weird I know. But Thane has this amazing ability to calm my fears - telling me they are growing up and reminding me that they will be fine and said they will be home before midnight- knowing full well that I can not stay up past 11pm no matter how hard I try. He is more of a night owl and can sit up and wait for them - while mother of the year here is tucked in bed snoring up a storm.

Kinda ironic that I can worry myself into a frazzle and then with five minutes of laying down on the couch or laying in the bed I am out cold turkey. Told you I was weird!

On a lighter note - we had another calf born yesterday that is doing fine. I haven't been down to get pictures yet, but when I do I will do a post on him. They are sooo cute when they are first born.

Oh hun, I KNOW what you're saying! When we went back to California last year, my 32 yr old "baby" tried sittin' on his Mama's lap, but we decided it was time to chance places. He was squishin' me! :o)
You never stop worrying though - and I guess that's just the price we pay for being Mama's.

Angie honey........you just have to grit your teeth and let them go.
More than likely they'll get a few bumps but they'll survive. Been there, done that with three of them.I wish I had all the enery back I spent worring myself silly.

Now, it's the baby calves I worry over. We have had four born since Thanksgiving. Three she's and a he.
All black with white faces.

Carol you sound just like my hubby,Thane- He says I worry and stress over everything and I just need to relax and let them be boys. lol.

Thank you for your words of encouragement.

Congrats on your new baby calves

LOL, I hear you. My youngest is 15 and I still have to remind myself he is growing up and to stop fretting so much...

Angelena said...

Molly- I am so glad I am not the only one!!!

Julieann- Hopefully tomorrow will be a bit warmer and I can get to the barn to take some pics.

I had to change the picture of Levi on my post- He took one look at it and said MOM, Don't put THAT on there! lol

I am glad you got to see it. It is one of my all time favorite pictures of him with the bubbles all around him and the only part of him you can see is his smiling face.

I actually envy you that you have boys. My daughter is 14- talk about a scary age! I think when my boys get to that age, I'll be more comfortable with it. Teenage girls are scary!!

It's hard not to worry about them. You do better than me, I don't sleep well, so I wouldn't be able to fall asleep that fast. Can't wait to see the calf's picture.
