I often wished I’d started blogging when my other 6 kids were younger. Life with 4 boys had its moments…
To understand my bunny tale I need to give a little back story.
As the home schooling,nature loving mom to 6 kids our home looked like a scene from my family and other animals at any given stage.
There is hardly an animal that we haven’t kept as pet, bred on a farm or healed to release.
So when moving to Cape Town from a years travels , it was only natural that my kids would want a pet.
There were several problems …
Firstly we were broke and i hardly had money to feed us let alone a pet, secondly we now lived in a flat the size of a cardboard box and there was no space for pets.
This did not deter my kids…
I arrived home to find a white fluffy Easter bunny on my lounge floor. Shaun had magically found the bunny just hopping in the road so he saved it. Of course he did!
To this day I have no idea where the bunny came from.
Slightly annoyed but not too sure yet what to do with our new fury squatter, we found a box and made a make shift home.
For 4 days this hop a long rabbit would escape and without fail I would come home to a complex of children frantically searching for the bunny.
By day 5 I was done . Really if the bunny had a problem with my hospitality he could just hop a long his merry way .
That afternoon I came home to Kiki crying the bunny couldn’t be found this time.
Sending up some silent thanks I assured her bunnys are smart and I was certain it had hopped in the vlei area to find his family.
The next morning was a Saturday and I arose early and opened the door of our pokey flat for air.
Low and behold…
Here in front of me stood the bunny and he snorted in disgust at having been outside all day whilst jumping over my feet into the door.
I gave up. Let them keep their Easter bunny.
Two days later I came home from work and discovered my children, heads under a bed and bums and legs sticking out.
What were they up to ?
As I greeted an excited monkey yanked out a tiny pink creature….
It seems our bunny was a she and had just laid some Easter bunnies…
8 little pink Easter bunnies to be exact.
Only in my house !!!
