My Mommy-heart is having a hard time this morning. A big bad man took my baby away from me and isn’t going to bring him back until this afternoon! Ok, it wasn’t a big bad man… it was Papa the Farmer… but the end result is the same… my baby is not home with me today. He’s been gone 10 minutes and I miss him already…
If you’re new to the blog, we are still in the beginning stages of farming. We’re not open for business yet and definitely still in the learning stages! We have 186 fruit trees that are still getting established, we just got our herb bed in and we’re working at planting vegetables. We’re still learning to protect the plants from animals, insects, weather and other miscellaneous mishaps. (We tried growing alfalfa and that didn’t work out.) Right now, we basically make cute little farmhands and produce a nifty blog. So, as you can see Papa the Farmer has to have a day job until we get the farm going.
So he does handyman and remodeling work.
Papa the Farmer meets a lot of interesting people through his handyman work. Today’s customer is a really cool bachelor who has all kinds of big steam-engines, heavy duty antique machinery, huge cast iron gears and all kinds of other things that would appeal to a little boy. So, the Little Farmboy gets to go for a visit today!
I packed the Little Farmboy a real working-man’s lunch in his easylunchbox and he was all set to go to work! This morning, this is what he looked like:
But in my heart, he still looks like this:
So, I’m having a little separation anxiety today. I’m sure the Little Farmhand will be fine. Hopefully I’ll be ok too!
