Some Bunny Loves You.
Cute title for a blog, right? I was reminded of an important lesson today, when someone sent me a request to be on the show. The topic was bunnies. Everyone gets excited around Easter time about the potential for having a pet bunny. This person wants to educate people on the fact that they are not easy to care for and they can be a lot of work.
I had a bunny growing up. However, had it been up to my parents it probably never would have happened. My grandmother took me and my cousins on vacation to her hometown in Iowa. It was a small town where everyone knew each other. We went to a friend's house to see his bunnies. Granny allowed us to pick one out! It was so exciting. I can now only imagine how my mother must have felt. Her children gone for five days and when they return, a little extra something in the suitcase. I bet she was furious with her mother-in-law. However, it wasn't really a choice--as to whether we would keep it or not. We were already attached to "Midnight" so she had to let us keep the rabbit and somehow my mom grew to love that rabbit too. So did our dog.
Now that I'm the parent, I know that if my parents did that to me, I would go through the roof. Although my mother is more likely to give my daughter a perm so she'll have curly hair than to give the kids a pet.
Kind of funny the lessons we learn when we become parents.
