here duck ducky ducky
anyway, let me introduce you to our pet ducks. most of the houses on our side of the street--all of them, in fact, except for ours--back up to a little pond. from that pond came two little ducks--a mommy duck and a daddy duck. our neighbors think they're looking for a place to lay their eggs. i'm secretly voting for our yard. how cute would that be?! :)
the ducks started coming by a couple of weeks ago. we fed them some bread and then they started coming by every day. :) they were SO cute, waddling side-by-side, quacking to each other.
sadly, only the mommy duck has been coming by lately. i don't know what happened. do ducks break up when it's time to lay eggs? i almost hope that's the case cuz if not, i have to assume something happened to daddy duck. :( does anyone out there know anything about ducks?
miss d. is so funny; she loves the IDEA of the ducks, but when they get close she freaks out and runs away, screaming, like they're going to peck her eyes out. ew. not that i can blame her. i swear, if they thought there was bread inside, they'd come right into the house.
ok ok i swear i'm going to bed.
