1. Chickens lay eggs. Plain and simple. My son was walking around, well, no, he was running around, chasing chickens - when he exclaims - "Mom, the chicken laid an egg!". I was passive, "yep, honey, chickens lay eggs, good job...". Then I looked by his feet and VOILA, the chicken literally laid an egg right before our eyes.
3. You WILL get chicken poop or some other kind of poop on your shoes, so DON'T WEAR YOUR FAVORITES...trust me on this one.
4. Cows. Well, they might do things that may be tricky to explain to a bunch of 4 year olds. I was hysterical when Wesley said, "Mom, what is that cow doing to the other cow?". Me - "Ummmm, I think it's butting the other one out of the way so it can eat more hay." That was brilliant, huh? Sheesh.
I started thinking today..."Wow, I would love this life. Wide open spaces. My boys learning good wholesome values and nature. Simplicity. Pretty sunrises,...etc" Then,
I stepped in chicken poop.
And I squealed.
Maybe I'm not a country girl afterall, but I sure do love to visit once in a while and enjoy all it has to offer.
