I follow the South Sydney Rabbitohs. Hubby follows the Parramatta Eels.
When Brother B and I came along, our fates were sealed - we were Rabbitohs fans because Dad and his family were.

But she really is "mummys little rabbitoh". Every time she sees anything red and green she shouts excitedly that it is the Bunnies. She has also recently taken to running around the house calling herself a "Burgess sister" after seeing the Burgess brothers at Coogee beach a few weeks ago.
I just took it for granted that our kids would follow the Rabbitohs, just like the rest of my family.
Hubby had very different ideas.
When our little man was conceived he was claimed as a Eels fan, right from the get-go. Boy or girl it didn't matter. He/she was going to be an Eels fan. At least if Hubby had anything to do with it.
When Little Mr 0 was actually born, Hubby bought him a Eels supporter pack containing a bib and several onesies with Eric the Eel emblazoned on them before he even got his first feed. It seems that his fate has also been sealed.

Little Miss 4 thinks that this is fair, she tells me, "We have two boys and two girls in this house and we have two Eels fans and two Bunnies fans too. That is fair, you know"
So, you see we had to have two kids; one Rabbitohs fan and one Eels fan because that is fair.
