JDaniel calls the irritating rabbit Jesus Loves Me Bunny. For most of the last year Jesus Love Me Bunny has lived at the bottom of the toy basket in his room. The bunny just didn’t interest him.
Last week about 3: oo a.m. I heard a small voice singing Jesus Loves Me through JDaniel’s baby monitor. At first I thought it was JDaniel singing as I listened more carefully I realized the voice wasn’t his but that of Jesus Loves Me Bunny.
I lay quietly in my bed listening to the bunny singing the complete first the verse of Jesus Love Me and waiting to hear if it had caused JDaniel to wake up. There was complete silence. I breathed a sigh of relief and drifted back to sleep.
Two hours later I heard the song again through the monitor. JDaniel slept through a second round of the song, but I lay there wide awake trying to figure out where this bunny was in JDaniel’s room and what was set off the song.
After much thought and time awake to think thoughts I came up with what I believed to be the reason. I had to wait until JDaniel woke up at 6:00 a.m. to see if the hypothesis I had formed was correct.
Do you know what was going on?
JDaniel had taken Jesus Loves Me Bunny and added him to the menagerie of animals that sleep in his bed with him. During the night he had rolled over the bunny in just the right spot to activate the song twice.
Guess where Jesus Loves Me Bunny sleeps now!
He sleeps in the bottom of JDaniel’s toy basket. It seemed like the best place for him to be.
I love singing Jesus Loves Me, but I don’t like hearing it in the middle of the night.
