It has been two weeks since I made a journal entry and now all of us boys have names. I being the oldest, and mom’s favorite, sorry that isn’t true, and I take it back, was the only one that helped with the choosing.
Our mom gets up much earlier than we do every morning and as she was getting ready to wake us my brother Benny jumped from under the blanket and let out a loud squeak, which made our mother squeak also. Our mom’s squeak was not the same as Benny’s but much louder. Hurry boys she said, as we found out this would be our first day going to work with our mom.
As we arrived at work mom told us again about getting along with one another and not to pull each others feathers while she was in a meeting in another big room.
We started waddling around her office and then spotted a nice looking sofa. We all hopped up and noticed that another likeness might be hiding up there. Benny being curious decided to investigate and see exactly where the friend might be. He pecked and then the rest of the boys joined in. I tried to tell them to behave, but no one wanted to listen. Feathers were flying everywhere and a friend was not to be found. Our mom came back from her meeting and her feathers were riled up after she saw the mess in her office. Benny explained that he was looking for a friend in the square thing on the sofa, but the friend must have escaped and just left his feathers.
Mr. Kind Man called my mom the following day to check on us boys and mom told him about the challenges of raising 10 boys. He told her that help was on the way and should arrive by the end of the week. We were all so excited. Could it be a big brother that was coming?
The week went by quickly and we had a quackingly good time.
On Friday, as we pulled into the driveway, we spotted someone guarding our front door! As we approached, the likeness introduced himself as Mr. Sargent Three Stripes and he was here to help us.
We arrived home after a full day of recreation at the beach and found beautiful photos on mom’s cell phone from Mr. Kind Man’s adventures and that made our day complete.
