It’s not easy informing a seven year old that his dream of owning his very own bunny rabbit is a bit atypical and downright unfeasible at the moment. I have to give him credit, though. The kid doesn’t back down. Months have passed since he made his very specific request: The bunny would need to be small, fluffy, enjoy walks on bunny leashes, love to be stroked regularly, and not produce poop. Clearly the stakes are high.
I have tried to persuade him that a real live bunny is a lot of work and quite frankly I refuse to scoop poop for any animal. I feel as though my duties in the poop department have been more than covered after raising three humans, so it’s up to someone else to take it from here. Plus, I’m terrified that we might actually kill a bunny because I’ve never had a pet of my own, except for a stray cat we took in for a day who quickly ran away after we dressed it up like a baby. Clearly unless bunnies want to be dressed up then I am out.
Due to a streak of stubbornness, which I cannot be held responsible for, since clearly this is a trait he must have inherited from his father, and an applaudable ability to manipulate those around him, which most likely comes from being a third child, I may be in for some trouble.
I’ve tried to convince my youngest that a room with bunny decor is equally cool as owning a real live bunny, but I’m pretty sure all I’ve done is put myself on the hook for both now.
Here are some fun ideas I found when researching “bunny decor” that really make me wonder::
Why do we usually only associate the bunny with Easter?
