Earn Your Keep
Our newly acquired hens seem to think they are in my garden to catch the sun and turn my soil. They are four lovely girls who 'buurrrr' when I approach them and peck at my shoes.
Eggs would be nice, more than one at a time I mean.
I believe in earning ones keep.
The hens should lay and though I tell them this daily, they just go about 'buurrrr-ing' at me.
I have similar feelings about my family.
And about myself for that matter.
We should earn our keep.
The children don't 'buurrrr' at me though, they just 'Oh, Mom' me.
The do your homework and get good grades speech comes daily in my house.
Though there is nothing wrong with being a bum for the rest of your life, I would prefer my children to only bum around on the beach on holiday.
The hens better lay soon, they need to set a good example for my children!
