She says they are vital, critical, un-skippable “hibernating box turtle safety checks.” And that it is her job as the official flockwide MommyGuard to perform these safety checks at very regular (oh so regular)  intervals.

But you know the truth. Your mommy is in Bruce-withdrawal.

It happens. After all…..cuteness.

It is bad enough your MommyGuard insists on digging around inside your carefully constructed – not to mention masterfully stylish – hay tunnel to find you. But then she has to pick you up and check you out all over….in the name of “box turtle safety,” she says.
