We had a new delivery this week in the Weight...What? household. Baby chicks! They came in the mail. Yes, in the mail. I went to the post office to pick up a little peeping box. And they are the cutest little things!
My daughter is smitten. If she's awake and home, she wants to be with the chicks. Who can blame her? Look at those little faces and fluffy bodies! And they're so entertaining to watch! We have one who has big dreams of escaping the box. She stares up at the top of the box, then suddenly leaps into the air. No, she's not even close to making it out, but she keeps trying. The other chicks freak out every time that one makes an attempt. Pretty funny to watch.
So as I mentioned, the chicks are kept in a box here. At first we had the box in the laundry room on the counter (to keep them away from a very interested dog). While up there, my daughter wasn't able to get to them to pick them up, so I was on pick-up duty. It became a joke around here that I was "The Claw" because I was always reaching in and grabbing them.
Oh, and their names? Marshmallow (Peep), Nugget and Noodle. 'Cuz that's how we roll around here.
