A Unexpected Sequel

Once upon a time there was this awesome mom.

Again, this person is me.

And she let her kids earn money to buy some rabbits.

Sound familiar?

Remember how one was a boy and one was a girl?

So do I.

Which is why, once we found this out in the form on a surprise litter, the two were henceforth separated.


Not even supervised visits.

We had a trip planned to Idaho and left our home in the care of our neighbor.

We came back a week later to find that there were no rabbits at our house.

Some of us (me) were delighted with the prospect that the rabbits had magically disappeared.

Not even close.

There was another litter of babies.

I don’t know, people, I just don’t know.

Our neighbor had taken the rabbits, now tripled in number, to his house.

The mommy had seven babies originally, but only four survived.

Not even survived, are pretty much thriving.

I have to admit, baby bunnies are awfully cute.

Way cuter that grown rabbits.



Unfortunately, we had about talked Elizabeth into giving her rabbit away as she had very little to do with her recently.

However, with the addition of these babies, there seems to be a renewed interest.




  1. You could always eat her rabbit...
