With occasional posts, Alexandra, Adrienne's older sister, writes of her ranch life in Nevada and raising four sons, ages 5 and under. Life is never dull and her boys have given her some pretty awesome stories to tell.

Stick around awhile, and you're sure to laugh, nod, smile, be encouraged, and see what life is like with a big (little) family.


Leaving that one alone.

Today at Hobby Lobby, the kids found rabbit skins for sale. After much to do about why on earth anyone would kill a rabbit (wonders Ruby) and feeling them and asking if they are real (wonders Sterling), Eden had the final say that made me choke on my gum.

Sterling asked how much the rabbit skins cost. Eden announced she hadn’t seen the price but she was sure they were expensive.

Sterling asked why, and then it came.

“Because rabbits are really rare.”

I choked. I snorted. It was entirely unladylike.

And then I started to tell Eden that people actually refer to something that reproduces often as… and then I thought better of it. I do not want to go there, and certainly don’t want to spark such conversations in Hobby Lobby. So we walked away, leaving it at “Rabbits aren’t rare, honey. There’s lots.”
