As a child, I adored “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter. Maybe because my dad’s name is Peter and one of our dog’s names was McGregor, named after Mr. McGregor of course, but also because I loved the naughtiness of such a cute bunny.
The irony is now I have my own Peter. My boy Banyan, nicknamed Bam Bam, is that naughty bunny. He keeps us girls giggling as he hops around the house and yard from everywhere he shouldn’t be. Good thing he is so cute.
It only took a few minutes for the tea party to unravel, but I got a picture of him in dad’s old sweet baby blue suit, complete with matching duckling sweater. My mother-in-law has kept some amazing pieces of wardrobe including this Easter suit.
Aspen is such an amazing big sister. She was giggling so hard when Banyan took his jacket off, as Olive kept on singing. Love her priceless smile, I can just hear her laughing.
If Banyan were Peter Rabbit, the story would go on to say: And then he spit the food out and asked Mr. McGregor for chocolate milk and more food. Then he dipped the food in the chocolate milk and ate it.
I love my kids to the moon and back, their crazy little quirks are exhausting but these are days of soaking it all in. Like chocolate milk soaks into one of Banyan’s waffles…
What are your or your kids’ quirky eating habits?
