We were so excited to see these little guys in Wascana lake yesterday. They are so amazing! It was fairly windy with waves that looked really hard for them to maneuver but they seemed to manage. Scary. And they also seemed to be very far from their mother for such a tiny age they must be. I couldn't even get them all in the shot, they were everywhere! Can that be safe?
There were very many goslings as well, and one that was having trouble keeping up with its group because it appeared to be lame. Oh no. What does one do as a gosling in such a situation. Or as a mother goose. Or as me!
The anxiety that babies cause is big. Then I think of my own babies and how scared I am with them getting hurt. I can't even do it anymore. Even though they probably can't technically be counted as babies, it seems the anxiety may now be worse than when they were babies. I know I have less control...stakes are bigger than ever and the world is really scary. Oh babies.
Those ducklings are pretty cute. But now I ask you, is the anxiety worth the cuteness? I don't even know.
Let's not think about these things for now. Just have a nice day and listen to some nice calming music. Yeah?
