"Where are your shoes?!"

Namkhaijantsan Ninjin (Mongolia)
On a weekend weekend visit to the "Peacock restaurant", I discovered my son's bravery and love for animals. While other kids were scared of the large bird, Batjin, who was just learning to speak, played with the bird and showed his concern by asking where the bird's shoes were. It was one of my proudest moments as a mother! I realized exactly at this moment that being a mother is my favorite job.
