What’s a mother to do?

These twins can forage for themselves at this point in life, but they kept trying to nurse a few days ago. The doe rejected their attempts until both fawns came running up at the same time, and she couldn’t escape. It may have been frustrating for the doe, but it was pretty comical to see. The doe kept backing up while they nursed and she was finally able to break free.  All three deer went back to eating acorns after that.  The three photos below tell the story.
