We saw her standing on the concrete railing by the pool, on one leg, so proudly. We wondered at the sight. Why was she there?
Then we saw her little one swimming in the water below...
...and to our delight, we discovered even more reasons as to the mother duck's focused pose.
Nestled in the corner of the pool were the rest of her babies.
She did not move from her position of guarding her little ones.
I understand that.
This week, when I took my little ones to the park, I stood guard too, although I kept both feet on the ground.
"Mothering" is a job to be taken seriously.
Just another "little something for you" today.
