Today was a day we’d been looking forward to for a long, looong time.
It didn’t quite turn out the way we’d planned, though.
But I really don’t want to talk about why.
Filling our kids minds with visions of bouncy houses, endless supplies of chocolate and peeps galore.
And how we spent hours getting ready… hair fixed, clothes chosen, teeth brushed, baskets intact.
Stroller. Diapers. Sippy cups.
Check. Check. Check.
Every last one.
For our own egg hunt.
I feel so much better.
We started by letting the kiddos pick out their favorite candy.
And choosing little prizes they thought their siblings would love.
Glittery eggs for the littles and solid eggs for the big kids.
The lower the number, the better… first pick won first choice of the prizes.
Just watching them wiggle and squirm, white knuckling their baskets as they waited for us to holler, “GO!”
Just us. Pushing and shoving.
There was plenty to go around.
Plus, we’d warned them all to stop hunting once they reached a dozen eggs.
She knew the old lady would give her all the candy she could eat.
No questions asked.
No explanation necessary for the smile.
The chocolate bunny.
