I love my mother for many reasons, one of which are her random emails/texts at strange hours. Now I have been on the rabbit bandwagon for years, pestering my husband to the point of insanity but he staunchly maintains his anti-rabbit stance (does the man have no heart?!). Perhaps I have been going about this operation all wrong. Who knew all I had to do was ply mom with some good wine, and let her do all the dirty work? If I had known it was this easy, I would have had her knock a few back before discussing my curfew in high school….

I keep passing that house that has the sign in front for rabbits and I am seriously thinking about getting 2 rabbits (they do better with a friend) for the kids for Easter – to keep at my house….

I am on my second glass of wine – is this crazy? I can get a hutch to keep outside – move inside the garage in the winter. Every Easter I think about ducklings or baby chicks – but no way we could keep those as they got bigger – but rabbits are doable and I think L is old enough to know how to treat them/act around them?

We had rabbits when we were little, am I being too nostalgic?

Every time I go into that feed and seed store I look at the hutches…I need a voice of reason.

GET THEM! I will totally be your voice of reason, it’s SO REASONABLE to get a pair of rabbits. They are so easy, no potty training, get a hutch for outside. Just think of those little faces lighting up at the surprise on Easter (mine included).

And the plot thickens…


I received messages via Pinterest throughout the night with all things rabbit; various types of breeds of rabbits, hutches, dietary needs for optimal health, rabbit farms, really just anything you could think of related to rabbits. 

We will venture to the parents later this afternoon, be sure to check back to find out the conclusion to this gripping rabbit saga!  (HERE IS THE REST OF IT!!!)
