Gearing up for a solo parenting weekend, full of soccer, bike rides and maybe some uhm relaxing craftiness? mmm… mess is screaming at me from the corners and I might have to scream back at it. I know this weekend the kids have plans to give the chooks a makeover, they did a test run of one the most passive girls, sat her in a bucket of warm water and gave her feet a wash, then wiped her down gently with warm water and groomed her beautifully, then tried to stop her from heading back to scratching worms – she was remarkably calm throughout – not sure how the other girls might react though – will be fun to watch.
