Six Cow Grandma

On Friday night, Mr. Nielson called me from the
 road somewhere to tell me he was on his way home.
He has been at the ranch since Monday.
I was expecting him home 
Saturday evening, so you can imagine how excited I was 
 to hear he was coming home to me. 
He crawled into bed late Friday night (or early Saturday morning).
I slept really well for the first
time since he left last Monday because, as I recall, I woke up really happy. 
It's so lovely to have him home.
Six calves (so far) at the ranch have been born! 
Does this make me a grandma?
I mean, I was present at the beginning of their existence
and feel like the whole process has come full circle I
was there to see it all the whole time!
Christian will be back at the ranch in a few days, and I will take the kids
 down the following week to see the remainder heifers deliver their calves.
The Little Nies can hardly wait.  
And you better believe that each of the six heifers has names already.
You know, names like Oreo and Milkshake.
