This is NOT funny. Not funny at all. But does anybody see anything ironic about this box labeled "Live Baby Chicks"? These are in fact, 23 dead chicks. I hope nobody is offended by this morbid post.
John has been telling us that a "surprise" would be coming in the mail and to be sure to rush to the post office the minute we got the phone call, which came first thing this morning.
I got the kids ready as fast as I could and loaded seven children into the car (my five plus my niece and nephew who stayed with us last night). How quickly the mood turned from excitement and anticipation to extreme disappointment and sadness for all of us. When we opened the box, this is the surprise we saw. Apparently the package got misrouted and arrived two days late. :( So sad.
Three little survivors however remain and have perked up significantly after being dropper fed water and little bits of chick food. Meanwhile a replacement box of "live baby chicks" have already been sent. We will be praying for a very speedy delivery.
