He Also Kills Small Puppies

Monday, April 09, 2007

This afternoon, at my folks place, we dined like Kings. There was a Ham AND a Turkey. (I had both) Stuperman came wandering into the kitchen, hungry and coming down from his fourth or fifth Sugar High. I got down on my knees to give him a quick cuddle. He was looking at the oven.

The Turkey was beautiful, golden brown and swimming in juices. It smelt wonderful. Stuperman Pointed at it, So I told him that it was the Easter Bunny. He giggled and said "Eater Bunneh!" Ignoring the gasps of dismay from the three other mothers in the kitchen, I took that as A Sign that I should continue.

I explained that Grandpa had heard a noise in the middle of the night and had killed the Easter Bunny by mistake and so now we would be eating him for dinner. Stuperman thought this was hilarious.

Later on, during the carving of the Easter bunny Turkey, Stuperman laughed and pointed, saying "Gampa cuttin the Eater Bunneh!". I kind of wonder what will happen the next time Stuperman sees a Turkey in the oven, but we will cross that bridge when it comes.

Since the Death of the Easter Bunny was such a hit with the baby, I brought Blue Boy over and explained what had happened.

His eyes filled with tears and his little lip trembled. Then He realised it was me he was talking to and yelled, "Dat NOT de Easter Bunny! I'm not eating Dat!!"

I tried my damnedest to convince him, I even offered him the fluffy bunny tail, arguably the best tasting bunny part there is. He was adamant and I finally had to quit trying to convince him when it looked like he was ready to punch me.

Le Sigh.

I moved on to Rainbow Man, who was playing his Nintendo DS in the living room. Again, I patiently explained what had happened with the Bunny during the night. I offered him a hug and said it would be OK. He looked up from his Game Boy, sighed and annoyingly adult sounding Sigh, and said "It's just a Turkey Mom, But I will play your game if you want."

They Grow Up So Damn Fast.

You'll just have to think of even better ways to scar Rainbow Man, won't you. He's forcing you to another level of the game... I'm certain you'll be able to manage.

You are so evil...I had KittyGirl convinced the Easter bunny wasn't coming because he was locked up in one of the cages at the pet store. Of course SBW is just too damn smart to beleive that.

BTW does coffee on Wednesday work for you? I would come earlier but I have to work, damn work.

Least we could have done was killed that damn rabbit before he crapped all over the floor-not that I stepped in any of it or anything! Next time we'll get a little more serious with the food fight-but I don't want to show the kids that throwing mashed potatoes can be far more fun than eating them-LOL
Luv ya guys

Ha...you're quite mean ;)

Kids stop being fun when they fail to fall for our juvenile pranks.

Course, my daughter doesn't believe a word I say now. That's kinda bad ain't it?

You rock. Your kids are hilarious.

Two years ago, around Easter time, there was a bunny hit by a car in front of my house. All my daycare kids got to see it as they were being dropped off at my house. One of my dads who has a sense of humor like yours told his daughter that it was the Easter bunny. She promptly went to her Christian preschool and told the teachers what her dad had told her. They did NOT think it was funny. I thought it was hilarious. People need to lighten up a little.

Yes and hooray! Those are freaking awesome. If I can find a delicate way of telling The Husband that he's buying me a present, I will totally steal your idea.

I'm putting this one in the pile of "reasons to have children." I mean, it isn't like you can tell OTHER PEOPLE'S kids that the Easter Bunny is in the oven.
