Did you have pets when you were growing up? My brother and I did! We had one of pretty much everything! We loooooooved animals and we loved having pets. Having pets is a wonderful experience for children (usually the parents have to help too!)
Well when Honey and I were visiting the Pine Mountain AnimalSafari recently we checked out the bunny den and had the following conversation:
Me: Awww look at these sweet little bunnies!
Me: They are so cute! I had a bunny rabbit when I was a little girl... You know what Baby? If we have a little girl she is going to want a bunny rabbit too.
Honey: Hmmm… I don’t think we'll need any bunny rabbits Love.
Me: Well she’s going to want one...and you’re probably going to get her one.
Honey: Ah, I don’t think so.
Me: Um-hum, ok.
Well it wasn’t but an hour later and you won’t believe what animal won my Honey’s heart. This little, baby animal:
Honey followed this little baby piggy, completely enthralled! I just sat back and watched. I watched him fall in love with that baby piggy. He talked about what the pig was doing, he took pictures, he thought that little piggy was the cutest little thing ever!!
When we left I simply said, “No bunny huh? I would have had no trouble carrying a pig home on my lap if I’d wanted to today. And you think you’re not getting a bunny??”
Apparently he loves baby animals. Who knew?!
