Unruly Teenagers

                                         Well, what do we have here? A cute little duckling!


Wait a minute, make that twins!


Hold on...triplets!!!

No, wait, it is quads...no sextuplets...I don't even know the word for it!!

And of course mom, following their every move. A very good mom, if a bit tired! So now the Mallard family is intact!! These chicks are about half grown so that would make them teenagers. I hear that dad has been seen running... swimming around with another girl.Such is life in the Mallard family! 

“…don’t wander off from your mother’s teachings. Wrap yourself in them from head to foot; wear them like a scarf around your neck.”

Proverbs 6

I guess dad isn't fond of hanging around with his teenaged kids. Moms have to so patient!

Oh they are just so cute and precious! And they are big family! Funny dad is swimming around with another girl :-) Mom must be busy taking care of the kids by herself!

Oh my gosh, they are all so cute. Poor mama Mallard looks a little frazzled but who wouldn't be trying to keep up with all those teenagers. Your header shot is awesome Ginny!

Love this post! All moms work so hard! I'm so glad I only had one teenager. :) lol
Happy weekend to you, Ginny!

Such Cuties.... Love seeing the babies--and the Mama does a great job of raising/training/teaching her little ones. Too bad that Papa doesn't help!!!!

When the Canada Geese have babies, both parents help...

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy
