The kids got to see a lamb born. As far as I could see, one potentially awkward future conversation just got a whole lot easier.
I thought. The question about how the lambs came to be was next. I mentioned rams. They said Grandpa didn’t have any rams out there. I assured them he must have had some sometime in the very near past. The notion of ewes simply birthing yearly without ram assistance was mentioned. The rams that recently went to market were mentioned. Mystery solved.
And so the awkward conversation came full circle. I believe I threw something in there about our goats, both male and female, and understanding dawned.
I am so not ready for this.
