    I meant mentally, not physically. Childish is as childish does.....or something like that.

    By aunts and uncles and grandparents...to some extent by parents.

    My fondest memories are not of "where we went" but of "what we did". Catching fireflies, going fishing for bluegill, watching hot air balloons, camping by the creek or by the pond in a homemade tent, hiking in the woods, building and flying kites...I never had any idea there wasn't much money because I was rich with experiences. And chores, lots of them, came first.

    My mom always says you don't spoil a child by loving them, you spoil a child by telling them no when you mean yes. I think you're making some awesome memories for her!

    I won't sully the title of child that way... :lau



    Spoiling comes in many forms... enriching experiences are the best, but fulfilling great desires are too... :)

    I've been keeping up, but I've been having a good time making big plans with chickens. And planning a few coops to sell.

    Chicken plans are usually good plans [​IMG]

    I missed out on a shot at an established flock of Welsummers yesterday. So now I'm debating getting some hatching eggs.

    I used to want Welsummers - I love the colors of the roosters and the speckled brown eggs from the hens. Now I really like smaller combed birds and want some AMs and OEs

    But I do love those speckled dark eggs, so who knows if a couple will end up in my flock some day.

    I understand the smaller combs. I've got a hatchery welsummer rooster right now, and I Woody about the comb sometimes in the cold weather. But I really like both Welsummers and barnevelders.
