So, today, I come home from work. The brooder is set up behind the couches in the TV room and mom is usually in there most of the day (hip replacement AND a knee replacement in one year!). I say hi to her, then lean over the couch and say hey to the kids. All of the sudden, all these little heads start raising up and they start peeping up a storm. Mom said they've been quiet all day. Ha. I'm not so conceited to think they really love me, but they do know that I'm the treat dispenser, so I go into the kitchen to mash up their two boiled eggs. They kept peeping like crazy - very loud - until I come back in with the dish of goodies. Of course, with 14, I can barely get the dish halfway under the cover before it's totally swarmed. Crazy kids.
