Mothers take many forms!

We're taking some time today to enjoy a beautiful spring day and celebrate the mothers in our life.

Happy Mother's Day to all you who have bravely brought forth life into this crazy world!

We're madly searching for another farm to move to...these ducks need a home in the country! Who can say no to a face like this little guy's?

If anyone out there knows of a farm to rent anywhere in the Wellington County area in Ontario, please let us know! Just leave a comment below or email me at annamariesmith (at)

Our youngest batch of ducklings are marvellous-because we had them from the time they were just a few days old, it seems that the imprinting experience that we hoped for took hold, and when we let them out they have no fear of us and follow us everywhere.
We think they see Daniel and Elijah as their 'mothers', as they're the ones who feed and give them water all day long. These sweet ducklings just climb all over them and follow them around. It's also hilarious to see them with our dog Tucker-they just cuddle up to him with no reservations.

What a good illustration that mothers can take all sorts of shapes and sizes! Even if you haven't technically birthed a child, happy Mother's Day to all of you out there who care and nurture for children, those of you who are caregivers, teachers, aunts and uncles, godparents, and others who take delight in loving children whom you hold dear in your lives. We who bore the children couldn't manage without you!
