I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of our baby ducklings and goslings for quite some time now, but hadn’t seen any. I had seen some broken egg shells, so I knew they had to be around. But today, I saw the first of the ducklings, or as a friend’s daughter used to say when she was a baby, “duck-a-lings”. There was Momma Mallard with about 8 little ones following closely behind. Of course there were a couple who were busy doing their own thing too. Momma already looks tired. But she is also very proud of her little babies too.
Mommy, wait for us.
Seeing the little “duckalings” just made my day.
