Just Ducky

Mom loves that duck.

She talks to it.

She clears the little fuzzies from its eyes so it can see, just like she pushes my hair back.

While one hand is making it quack, the other hand is holding the bill shut so it can't quack.

She tells it her secrets.

And just generally has a good time with it.

Yep. she loves that duck.

Hello, again! It's the anon idea person who knows too much... : )

These pics of your Mom are nothing short of awesomely beautiful. Really! She is so Happy with that duck. Thank you for posting these!

I am a LTC nurse who worked the field for 20+ years. I was a nurse who would sneak in baby dolls and cuddly things for the residents. I have seen family members flame up into outrage over finding their Mom cuddling one of the baby dolls. The most realistic & affordable baby dolls come from from Berenguer (see below). They are life sized and have a real baby feel when you hold them.

I am all for toys, stuffed animals, baby dolls, and anything safe and comforting to bring that happy and peaceful face on. There just are no words...

So, check out the following website (if for nothing else for a cuteness fix) and keep enjoying the now & posting! Thank you, again. (Berenguer baby dolls)

Anonymous, I don't know how long you've been reading along, but Mom has a babydoll named Judy. (Do a search on Judy and I'm sure several posts will come up.) She loves Judy too.

Amanda and Rick, they make me cry too. But also smile.

Hi, there -

I'm a sometimes-stop-by reader, and I'm so glad I did to catch these pictures. Talk about a picture being worth a 1000 words. Your mother is so very obviously (at least for this space and time) completely happy and content without a care in the world. As it should be.

You are amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Chicken Mama
