The other day Jacob came home from school with a paper bag bunny basket he had made with candy in it. He was very excited as he showed it to me, explaining that they had decorated them the day before.
“So, the Easter bunny came to the school during the night and filled your basket?” I asked.
“No, silly, Mrs. — was the Easter Bunny.” He had his hands on his hips, looking rather indignant.
“Oh. Well, who’s the Easter bunny here then? Will she come fill all of our baskets?”
“Noooooo,” He drew out the word and raised his voice at the end. “The bunnies in the backyard, they come in and put candy in our baskets.”
“Oh. You mean the little brown ones you were watching the other day?”
“Yup! But they were black and white, Mom.”
