A Demon on the Farm

I took Demon Baby to a pumpkin farm. They had animals, too--rabbits, sheep, cows, turkeys.

Demon Baby raided my wallet for quarters to put in the little pellet machines to feed said animals.

Then he stood at the fence, amidst a huge crowd, screaming, "SHEEP! COME HERE SHEEP! COME AND GET IT!!!!!!"

This is Demon Baby on the tractor ride. He made me ride it five times.

Five times on a tractor pull.

A woman can only stand so much excitement.

Then again, I got to see this smile the whole time.

You are welcome to borrow him for a day. ;-) I need the rest!

Karmela said...

Remember the time when he couldn't talk and you were all worried?

laughingwolf said...

lol... what a charmer :D

btw, mother said when i was small, my voice would carry over that of anyone in any crowd... is db related to me, psychically? :O lol

Erica Orloff said...

Yup. I do remember. Now he's scary verbal.


Erica Orloff said...

laughing wolf--oh, his voice carries. You sure you can't hear him?


Jude Hardin said...

That smile makes it all worth it. :)

Robin said...

His grin is just too cute. He's not grinning because he's watching you throw up on the 5th hayride, is he?

Erica Orloff said...

It does. It really and truly does.

Erica Orloff said...

In all sincerity, it's because he and I were alone and he had me ALL TO HIMSELF with undivided attention, not fighting siblings, the phone, work, nothing. Just me and him . . .

Demon Baby's perfect day versus Mommy's duty. I remember those days well. He was so excited and I tried hard to be but my mind was always buzzing with other stuff I should be doing. I was running my own business (much like you, Erica) until he was 6 when I sold it to homeschool him. Then he got plenty of me.
But certainly worth it for the smiles on their faces.
