Every year we (the mom friends with no or little family here) get together for Easter and do a little egg hunt and dinner at our house. This year’s Easter was small but loaded with fun! Brooklyn was old enough to know what to do and be excited about doing it- and at points jealous that others were doing it too–and a little upset with Mr. Easter bunny for putting mommy and daddy candy in HER eggs!
The comparison- odds are stacked against the boys with little baskets!
Didn’t your mom teach you not to count your eggs before they hatch…I felt so bad here I had this ecstatic child overwhelmed with a basket of eggs full of candy and some cookies that were sugar free of course- (if you know my kid you know why I say that!) yet I had to sit with her and take away the candy- Kinda like Halloween they got bagfuls and couldn’t have any. I often think that we ate candy and it didn’t kill us, but none the less they say it can hurt them so she can’t have it- I know mean old mom!
Trying to sneak a little candy…caught in the act!
End of the day…Ok lets take a group photo- what a great idea! If any of you parents (I say specifically parents because for some reason they will do it for non parents) have ever tried group photos on this age group you have probably seen this face too! My daughter and apparently her friend did not want to take a picture- this is the reaction we got per the request….
