While working in my office one day last summer I heard Wyatt in the next room in my studio area. I could hear some unusual sounds …
Me: Whatcha doing?
Wyatt: Nothhhing…. ( a long lingering nothing where the “…ing ” lingers then fades ever so slow.)
Then I hear scuffling , trying to be quiet noises, and little peeps. Peeps as in yes, sounds a chicken makes.
I got up and looked around the corner not sure of what I’d find. There he was wearing his farm straw hat with one of his Bantam chick’s named , Pepper firmly under one arm and a tricycle loosely teetered sideways in the other. He said sheepishly that he was giving her a ride.
Hmmm. I have never had a chicken in the house before so don’t think this is normal . But, I have to say it was too cute. I had to hurry and find my camera because as I have learned , mostly those unexpected cute things with children are cute the first time around or it would be something that wouldn’t happen again.
So here is a day in a life of Wyatt with his chick, and Pepper’s debut .
