Some Bunny Special, Or, Saturday Morning at 5:49am


My daughter called me. Giggling.

“Mama, I got the cookie. And the card says, ‘Your mom thinks you’re some bunny special.'”

I explained to her that I had won the cookie from a giveaway on Pink Martini’s site. That Pink Martini makes these cookies and decorates them herself. How cute they are. That no, I had not suddenly gained skills to do this kind of thing. That Pink Martini, being a mom herself, had volunteered to make 2 cookies, although I’d only won one, just so that neither of my children felt left out. We talked about what the cookie looked like, how it had a pearl necklace on, and that the ear had broken in transit, but she didn’t mind.

I IM’d my son.

Mother: Did you get the cookie?
Son: Yep.
Mother: How is it?
Son: Good.

Week passes. We IM again.

Mother: Did you get my email to take a picture of the cookie?
Son: I ate it.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate Easter, and I hope those celebrating Passover have had a wonderful week and great Seders.

    Too funny! This difference prevails in my family as well, altho' not always as clearly along gender lines. . . Have a Happy Easter!

    Too funny!

    My MIL hosts the big family Seder (sometimes as many as 35 people) which we held last night. Convenience trumps tradition; we pick a night sometime during the 8 days that's easier for those who have to travel. The Hagaddah has become shorter over the years, but everyone gets a paragraph or two to read. I have a feeling the torch may be passed within the next few years, and I seem to be up next in the relay.

    I can see that that's how it's going to be with J and Z, too. :) Already, Z thanks me effusively for little things, whereas I have to coax a muttered "thanks" out of J.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    This is classic. I have two sons–no daughters, sadly–so my contact with them is pretty much limited to similar text messages. Sigh.

    When did you adopt my son? I mailed him a package of Yankee stuff when they won the World Series. Did you get it? Yep. Did you like it? Yep.

    I may or may not have taken a few liberties. Which is to say that these conversations did happen. But which is also to say that we have others which use way more words:). It was just so funny, that he ate the cookie…
