no grandbabies in my future?

I wish I had some pictures to go with this little tale, because my bet is that they would be classic.

A few weekends ago, the girls spent the night at Grandma and Grandpa's to help with lambing.  One of our lambs ended up having a baby, so it was exciting.  The girls have worked with their grandparents quite a bit, vaccinating, sorting lambs, and routine chores and such, but this was something new.

As the older two were getting ready to go, Emmy decided she'd like to help too.  Kate did her best to talk her out of it.  "No Emmy.  Trust me.  You haven't had "the talk" yet and believe me, Grandpa tells you everything."  Despite Kate's best efforts to horrify her, Emmy still chose to go- assuring us all that she would just stand by to help "hand people stuff".

Well.  When it was all said and done, here was the report:

1.  "Oh my heck, mom.  Grandma stuck her arm inside the lamb all the way up to here."

2.  "Did you know the mom's eat that disgusting pouch that comes out when the lamb is born?  Sick."

(and the kicker. . .)

3.  "I am NEVER having kids.  Seriously."

All in all, a successful experience.
