AbbyDay - The Twins are Growing Older

It is always hard for a nanny to admit that her kids are getting older and don't need her as much. I know it's what I need to do; teach them to be able to live on their own and be strong does.

But I am still sad.
We were out grazing the other day and Thelma didn't even notice I was moving on.

She was too busy hopping on a log and looking at her reflection in the window of the publicist's yurt. She was having a good time hopping up and down on the log and I just wanted to eat some grass.

Thelma just wanted to hop and jump and play like a kid should.

I left her there and Louise and I moved on.
It IS good she is confident.
But I know I will miss them as they grow and leave.
A nanny always does.

But I will soon have my first grandkid when Nora has her first kid in July.
I think it will be fun to be a grandnanny.


  1. count your blessings...at least goat kids don't return to home base!

  2. Thelma, you are too cute hopping up and down off that log. It is too bad you can't stay with your Mom a little longer. It is sad when they have to be weaned. Hope all have a fun day. Take care.

  3. It is nice to be a grandnanny. In fact, Minnie likes that better than having her own kids. :-)

  4. awww. babies grow up so fast... sweet post.

  5. *sigh*

    I don't *want* Darla to grow up...........

    (I love Abby Day!)

  6. I know I've said this before, but I can't believe how quickly baby goats grow up!

  7. It's true - baby goats DO grow up very fast! My human needs to take note of that the next time she gets excited over baby goats.

  8. Awww, you know, humans feel the same way about their kids, too.

  9. Your kids did grow up really fast but they are still cute as can be! We bet the Farm Cats were enjoying Goat TV starring Thelma!

  10. Oh, the heartbreak of motherhood. Our sole job is to raise those babies and then we spend the rest of our days missing them and wishing they were little again. I know the feeling, goat pally. All too well.

  11. The twins are just about two months old now. They will have to find new homes soon. Which is sad....


Maaaaaa away....
