You think motherhood is tough?

If only I'd had goats before I had my human kids, I would have complained a lot less about how tough it is raising a baby! Human kids might like to crawl all over your lap, but they don't stand on top of you every time you sit down. Ouch! That's gotta hurt! But Charlotte and Sherri are such good mamas, they don't even seem to notice.

And although human kids nurse a lot, they are no competition for goat kids, which nurse for about 20 seconds every five or ten minutes that mama is standing up. And when mama starts to walk away, goat kids don't let go easily!

And I'm still trying to figure out why animals with only two teats often have three or four kids!

Such a great picture! Poor Mamas eventhough they make it look like a walk in the park! :)

Oh so cute! I can't wait to see Luna trying to dance on her mom's back! That's going to be worth a picture for sure!

They're beautiful! Do you think that's why we human Moms stand so much?? LOL
I think they have multiples just to show off. ;)

I can't imagine those tiny hooves prancing all over me - it's bad enough that my cat walks all over me! Your goat families are gorgeous.
