Why Rabbits Lay Eggs

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.

J: Really?

C: Yeah. So I can eat them.

That boy is just so not going to be a vegetarian.
