No, Joan, there was no cookie person in my life, thanks to religious isolation. I made a habit from a very early age to be as invisible as I could be,because I feared my family's derogatory remarks. As soon as I could read I took shelter in books and learned to think and study my surroundings without letting anyone know what I did. I yearned for animals, a cat! but within two months they gave away the kitten I had begged for. And my parents were very disappointed that they couldn't get rid of me into a home for the blind... I prefer your stories about your three toddlers.
Kathy, thanks for the information about black rabbits. I don't think I want to raise any at this time. If I decide to, I'll probably get one from a rabbit farm. I suspect there's less chance of disease that way.
Thanks, Chris. I wonder if you have some stories o share. I know you were in a dysfunctional family. Did you find solice in books, daydreaming, or did you have a "cookie person"?
When I worked at the boys' ranches, I could usually tell if a boy had a cookie person at home, a relative, neighbor, mailperson, someone who listened and comforted the boy.
Yes, Joan, I think your three little rascals were a little smarter than bunnies.
Nice stories, Joan!
Spud, so you know how to raise rabbits! Great. Don't let that treasure get away from you.
P.S. the rabbits never got out of the wire fencing but my three little rascals did.
or, get wire fencing that is heavy enough that you can move it, and move it around the grass until all the grass is chopped down and fertilized. Just be sure to move the fence often enough that the ground doesn't become over-fertilized.
That was the method I used when my three children were babies to about three years old. We had three pet rabbits. Don was in Viet Nam and I lived in a small house with a huge lawn. I didn't like to mow, so Mom and Dad got us three rabbits, each a different color so that each child had their pet rabbit. I had to move the fence myself and this fence was very easily managed.
When Don came home from Viet Nam I used the fence for the kids to keep them in hand when they were little. Remember, all three are within 5 months and 13 days of each other; an adopted son and a twin boy and girl. They were three years old when we moved on base at Ft. Lewis and I had quite a time keeping an eye on them. I dressed them all in bright red and blues and green colors. I went to great lengths to keep them controlled while I went to the bathroom. On those occasions when they got out of the fence or house, which was far too often, the kids would wander around together. If they got scared, they would look at each other and then buck up their courage and go farther. The M.P.s brought them home, or the neighborhood knew that if the kids were wandering I was probably on my toilet and the kiddos got loose. Luckily, we lived on base and were well protected from outside elements. That didn't keep them safe from cars or animals.
