Late Friday, just around sunset, Motor Man and I were treated to a special show taking place in our yard.
As he was walking by a window in our bedroom, something outside caught his eye. He immediately called me over and quietly said: “…the tiniest fawn I’ve ever seen.”
That evening, I shared this photo on Facebook.
We’re fairly certain that the little one had just been born. I took this video, and, unfortunately, it’s a little shaky in spots, so I apologize for that. I hope the cuteness factor will overrule the shakiness.
Also, we call the mom “Cripped Mama Deer”. She has lived in our neighborhood for at least ten years, and although it’s painful to watch her walk, she seems to manage okay with her disability. And… every year, she becomes a mom again, this year, just in time for Mother’s Day.
(Be sure your speakers are on. The song I used for the video is “I Get To Be The One” by J.J. Heller)
So, Happy Mother’s Day to you, Crippled Mama Deer. We’re so happy to have seen your new little one so soon after it arrived.
