Gee, Grandma, three new babies at one time?! You are brave,
masochistic, or both.
I don't consider myself either brave or masochistic...
it's just that at this age in my life they provide the most
satisfactory love object I can imagine.
I've never had human babies (don't want any) and after years of puppies, a
baby skunk is quite a challenge. Not the puppy, not the kitty! But I love
mine to pieces! Still I don't know how ppl raise human babies they are much
more demanding, tempermental, and Messy! Peri
Wait!!! You will find that baby skunks are more demanding, more
temperamental, and considerably more messy than any human baby....
BUT it's worth it!!
For instance: This morning I'm trying to figure out why a five-week
old small four-inch creature weighing less than a pound cannot be
contained in a full size playpen that a 14month-old 20 lb
baby could play in for months.
I have to admit that in the last few years I had forgotten the
pitfalls of the newborn. Caesar had not been in the house for two
hours before he was lost twice-- once in an incredibly 2-inch crevice
which he crawled into... he did not fall into it.
but... I'm the happiest I've been in several months.... come on
world-- bring on the next challenge.
