Blinkin's Baby

Blinkin has been up in the mountains staying at my daughter Melody's. When she went up there I went over with the grands about her being pregnant and due to kid around March 24. The grands really listened and have done a great job of caring for her and the others they have from Hidden Haven. In fact they are in the raising goat business and call their farm: Hedden Haven (their last name). Anyway, the grands decided to skip school on March 24th so they would be home with Blinkin. I told them goats don't always kid on their exact due date but they wanted to be there. Blinkin decided to make the grands happy and delivered a big buckling around 10:30am. Melody arrived after the grands helped with delivery.. Woody and Zack stayed right with her and helped clear the mouth, nose and dry it off. Hope brought towels and warm molasses water. They even cleaned up everything afterwards. They did a wonderful job taking care of Blinkin and her new son. Frosty Dan is the proud pop.

How wonderful! And people say kids today have no iniative and are unwilling to see things trough. glad to see your grands are putting that misconception in the compost pile where it belongs.

My parents wouldn't ever let me stay out of school for anything and yet I think it is wonderful they were home for the delivery and helped. That will be a terrific memory that will last throughout their lives.
