Heading out to do an Easter Egg hunt with the progeny? Take a three-year-old’s words of wisdom with you.
Cinder was two months short of three years old when he had this profound insight:
Cinder: Mama, do rabbits lay eggs?
Jane (not realizing the whole Easter thing’s around): No, baby, they don’t. Rabbits give birth to live baby rabbits.
C: Oh. Then why Easter Bunny brings eggs?
J: The Easter Bunny?
C: Easter Bunny says rabbits lay eggs.
J: He does?
C: Yeah. Rabbits lay lots and lots of eggs. And chickens hatch out of them.
C: Yeah. So I can eat them.
That boy is just so not going to be a vegetarian.
