Two of Her Own

  •  
  •  

Little V has been surfing the blogosphere and brushing up on her skills. She is reading and following a good number of web comics. She is quick to tell me when I am commenting on a web comic space, “I want to read at the top.” Did I mention she has a New York City quarter-second timer?

When I am not quick enough for her, she prods, “The panel, Momma. It’s at the top.” Persistence. I wonder where she gets it. (No snickering.)

You see, she is gathering up technique and mechanics for her own animation. She is my most artistic progeny, at least in the classical sense. She draws incessantly and builds story boards. Autism may make the dialogue difficult to follow at first, but once edited, her boards are well-thought-out, sometimes funny, other times poignant. She has the makings of a good animator. And Momma says go with your strength.

Wombania

Plenty of you have noticed Binky as a frequent commenter on M3. Turns out I am a frequent commenter on Wombania as well. With years worth of back panels for Little V to flip through, she has been using some of her time to catch up on the life and times of the Wombies.

Wait. What? What is a Wombie? Oh, good heavens. Let’s start with the wombat.

The bare-nosed wombat looks a bit like a bear….

Three breeds of wombat are native to Australia, which is their only natural habitat. But even then, only a very small portion of Australia provides the correct combination of warmth and rainfall to sustain wombat breeding and rearing of young. The marsupials can be a handful, sometimes getting as large as 75 pounds (35 kg).

Not a lot of territory!

Wombies, on the other hand, are genetically engineered wombats. Dr. Franco designed them to be the perfect house pet. Apparently, his Chihuahua was nothing like Beau Chien.

Adoption

Since Wombies are terrifically lovable, intelligent and mischievous, it stands to reason adopting Wombies into our family was an absolute necessity. It is with great pleasure, I introduce Claret and Bruno, the newest members of our family.

Claret and Bruno

Claret is quite the sophisticate. She enjoys her champagne soda and wine gums with the assorted characters. She is working on her exclusive SPAM cookbook, due out in markets across the globe sometime in the next year.

Bruno is a nickname forย Brun Roux.ย Do not be fooled by his bow tie. He sports it to all of Claret’s social functions, but he is constantly in the yard helping Cash hone her digging skills. He is blueprinting the design for the in-ground swimming pool Claret has decided is necessary for our social evolution as a family.

See For Yourself

Take a few minutes to visit Wombania and meet the other Wombies: Binky, Winky, Twink and Fraz. You may even run across a few other Wombies who were part of Dr. Franco’s original 27, Chris Land and Zoe.

You can meet some other adopted Wombies at Debbie Adams’ Art & Blog and Cat Forsley.

If you are really ready, you can apply to adopt your very own Wombies. Adoption is a wonderful experience!

How well do you think Wombies fit in with other pets? Are your pets adopted? Are they members of the family?

    • Good to see you, Tink! My little lazy Wombies are down for a nap. The children just finished lunch. Perhaps, after lessons this afternoon, I will allow them on the ‘net so they can introduce themselves. Yes, they do love Uncle Binky as well! xxx Auntie Red.

  3. Hi there Claret and Bruno…Welcome! You have one smart mom there!
    Bruno, don’t let Claret paint your toe nail. My sister is always chasing me around the house to try and paint mine….but I DON”T let her paint my toes nails.

    • They are fitting in rather well…Already Little V has two panels done with them. She decided after she drew them, it was not Winky, but Bruno in the first frame. I suppose I will have to get some of the strips done so i can add them…{HUGZ} Red.

    • They are so very cute. And mischievous! Little V is already getting them into scrapes. *sigh* I think she may be the youngest artist with a blog before she is finished…. Great to see you today! You have been missed. xxx

    You did a great write-up, Red. Thanks for the tribute!

  7. how exciting, Red – what wonderful news on the additions to your fambily… I had NO idea the Wombies were such big (no, I don’t mean pot belly big) family. There must be Wombies all over the world now!!!

    • The Wombies are flung far and wide. Little wisdoms everywhere. They blend into family life really well, so I am sure, they will be making their way into the real realm soon enough. Just what I need…another craft project! xxx

  8. Sounds like you are a wonderful mother Red! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Go little V!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lots of luck with your new Wombies! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’re not allowed pets in the flats unless we live on the ground floor, so I have a pet brick… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and hugs!

    • Oh, pish tosh. All parents want their children to succeed. And if what it takes is buying her animation software, it is simple enough! Pet brick…is that a step up or down from a pet rock? *giggles* {HUGZ} Red.

    • I had to blow the picture UP to see exactly how small that dot really was! They are so cute though. Not quite so bear-looking.

      • Critically endangered. There were only about 115 in a single colony, but conservationists have apparently established another colony.

        • I am so glad to hear of the new colony, but I had no idea the population had dipped that low!

  10. Isn’t it fantastic seeing your kids finding and developing their loves and strengths? I’m delighting in that discovery with my own little dudes as well.

    The Wombies are adorable pets! I’m not sure they’d fit in well in our own house, though – the border collie is protective and territorial. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • You should see how territorial Beau Chien is!! He had a conniption today because I left the Little Bear in the bathtub! At three pounds I can see Beau thinking he would slide down the drain, but at 85 pounds, I am thinking the Little Bear runs far less risk!

      Great to see you this morning!
