If you are a mom (or dad), and you were
planning your child(ren), did you
look at the calendar and count ahead 9 months or
have an idea of when you would like your
child to arrive via The Stork?
I have a confession.
I pulled my calendar out a couple of days ago
and started counting months.
Babies are just, just, just SO cute!
It's been a while since we had babies in the house and my
maternal urge is at it again.
This time though, I'm having my babies
delivered via the Post Office.
The Stork brought twins last time so
I'm "playing it safe" this time around.
And if you don't already think I'm crazy...
I'm going for Octuplets!
I even picked their sex and DNA!
Oh, the pluses of modern science and
the convenience of mail order.
I'm expecting around my birthday (early, early December).
Here are the features I chose for my girls...
2 Black Australorps
2 Barred Rocks
2 Buff Orpingtons
1 Ruby the Redhead (Rhode Island Red)
1 Silver Laced Wyandotte
I was hoping for some
or Blue Copper Marans
or a lovely Lavender Orpington,
but they aren't on the availability list to order right now.
There's always next Spring, though!
