I'm a DC area mama who knows my time with three small children at home is both chaotic and fleeting. That's why I try to find humor in everyday life, and also wine on sale. Follow along for recipes, style tips, product reviews, and a good laugh.
I'm finally getting around to documenting this one. In all honesty, we've fed ducks, or "cack cacks" as Dominic calls them, a few times since I started my Day Zero project. Dominic LOVES ducks :) He loves all animals but ducks in particular. Last night after dinner Hub, D, and I walked behind our house to the pond with a pack of slightly stale hot dog buns. Of course the ducks were alllll the way on the opposite side of the pond from us and I didn't want to get all the way over there only to have them fly away. So I picked D up and half-ran over there. As soon as the "cack cacks" were in sight Dominic practically lept out of my arms. He was squealing at me as I opened the package of buns. He is so big. He knows exactly what to do and doesn't want any help at all. I handed him bun after bun and he ripped them apart and threw them to the ducks (who, btw, were very brave and came right up to him).
At one point, I wasn't quick enough reloading him with duck food so he took one himself. hehe.
When we were all out of buns the ducks waddled into the pond and swam away.
