We read “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” before bed tonight (Lauren picked it out…her nickname is Bunny and you can be sure that she picks out a book about a bunny every night!). In the story the mother rabbit tells her bunnies to stay away from Mr. McGregor’s garden because their father had an accident there and ended up in a pie. I usually skip the “ended up in a pie” part because it always starts a conversation about rabbits in pies and why would anyone want to eat a rabbit.
Well, tonight I read it and Abby asked “Why wouldn’t she just get married again and get a new dad for the bunnies?” I asked Abby if she would want a new dad if Jess died and she eventually decided she would want me to get another dad for her. I asked her if she would want a new mom if I died and she said yes to that one too . Then (here’s the good part of the story!) Lauren said, “No new mom. Neni mommy” Neni is how she says Jeni. That made my night. I think I’ll keep her.
