bunny! bunny! bunny!

ok, so maybe a better title for closer to Easter, but still, it wraps up this next story beautifully.

so Snickelfritz has been home for the summer (for those of you not familiar with ‘Fritz, she is a 12 pound gray rabbit) and she even managed to survive the move. One of the many bonuses of our new abode is the privacy fence around the yard, which means baby and bunny are free to roam without too much supervision.  yes, that’s right, we let the bunny AND the baby out in the yard, free, together.  Of course, the baby LOVES the bunny.  And if she could say it, I know she would be chanting, “BUNNY BUNNY BUNNY!” over and over while she chases her around the yard.  Tonight though, as the bunny slowed down in her game of tag and let the baby catch up, the baby was not expecting it and tripped right over Fritz’s tail and landed right on the bunny!  I was so proud of that little rabbit when she didn’t even move until the baby picked herself up and tagged the bunny’s tail.  Good ol’ Rabbit.

back to school

Category: Adventures in Parenting – Mommy Rimes – 9:53 am

Our baby has moved up to the Toddler room at daycare.  She now takes one nap, plays outside daily, and has access to many climbing and rolling toys.  She is completely in her element.  But that mirror thing still escapes us and our little munchkin has a bruise on her forehead from getting too close to that pretty little girl in the mirror.

Meanwhile, Mommy and Daddy are both back to work and playing (ok, teaching) other people’s children.  The first days back are filled with smiling children, ecstatic parents, and lots of homework-just kidding.

Don’t worry Baby Rimes, your day will come soon enough.  For now, just enjoy the playing with your friends and the napping after lunch.  Kindergarten will come all too soon and Mommy will be really sad to see you grow up.
