can’t sleep!

As most of you know I am up very very early in the morning, usually about 2:00 am.  I don’t sleep very good, but tonight I can’t even go to sleep.

You see my three little babies are spending their first night outside alone, well in a pen by them selves.  I have gone out several times to see if they are crying and I couldn’t hear them so I guess they will make it.

After having Booger Red and Termite, as Roy calls them in the house at night for 6 weeks and little Sunshine is only 12 days old, I worry.

Nothing can get them and Pilgrim and Mary stand guard 24/7, but I think they might miss me…..I miss them.  Roy went to work today and the babies are getting to big for me to carry back and forth, so after much discussion, I said ok, they should stay outside.

Maybe I will try to lie down and daylight will come real soon.

Barb.. only a farm girl would miss having her goats in the house with her... Was your real name Ellie Mae in another life!

glad they are safe... I do know what you mean. Our daughter and SIL with the big truck raise goats and her favorite is "Snowball"... all grown now, but still Rach's baby.

Oh, Barbara ... my heart goes out to you ... and to your little ones on their first night outside. I'm sure they will be just fine, but I know you can't help but worry.

Try to get some rest tonight ... I'll bet your babies are fast asleep knowing Pilgrim and Mary are watching over them and their "mama" is not far away.

Sweet dreams! I'll check on you in the morning.

How sweet! They would be crying if they weren't happy. Babies do that you know. ;)
