    Default Weaning in nature

    I thought some of you might get a kick out of what DS and I watched this evening in our meadow. A doe and her fawn, who come by each evening, were out there grazing and mama squatted down to pee. Baby immediately ran to mama and stuck her face down there to nurse -- and mama jumped up like she just got stung by a bee and stalked off, with baby chasing after her.

    It just looked so familiar somehow....

    Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

    So familiar! I've seen cows do the same thing- there's mama cow, her big old udder swinging as she hustles away from her adolescent calf, who is almost down on his knees trying to crawl underneath her and grab hold of a teat...
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    I remember when one of our cats had kittens when I was a child. They were outdoor cats and the mamma used to go across the street to get away from them once they got older.
