I HAD TO SMACK A DUCK!

I had to Y'all. I had to!
I am not a person to around smacking ducks and stuff, but do you see those ducks/geese, whatever they are?
I took The Boy to a local pond with 3 bags of stale bread in tow. We sit down to feed them and all the sudden honking duck-geese swarm us! Pecking & biting! The Boy had a piece of bread in his hand to throw and a duck-goose pecked him. What's a mama to do? I did the first thing a mama thinks to do when her baby is being threatened, of course. I reached over and smacked the duck-goose across the mouth and said "NO BITING"! I realized I had just smacked a duck and looked around to see if the duck police had seen me. We were alone. Thank God! Then I gave the duck a talking to about biting other people's kids. I think he understood

Funny, woman! Funny!

I'm not a big fan of geese...my in-laws are always taking Girly out to feed them at the local cemetery...let me tell ya, there are some strange pictures of my kid at that place. Sitting on headstones, running away from geese among them. But for some reason, the people come in droves to this place to feed the ducks and geese with their kids. It's so common out here that it makes me wonder if there's something wrong with ME for thinking that this is kind of a warped practice...

I got bit hard by one of those,and will never forget it.They say they make great security pets for your yard,and I see why,"respect the goose".
