Before I get to my subject line, I'm popping into share a card for the current Embellish Challenge. It has been a really long time since I've played along with one of the challenges. I really adore them. I used my PTI Larger than Life set and matching dies. I had to have the dies, but candidly haven't used them too much, so it was time to break them out! Unfortunately, this sympathy card is already in the mail for one of my co-workers who lost their mom to cancer after a long battle with lung cancer.
Now onto the title of my post. Here it is…I am not a good Easter Bunny.
Rewind: Spring 2010: Pat and I went out shopping last year a few days before Easter and picked up a some goodies for the boys Easter baskets. Needless to say, we forgot to bring them in from my van. Fast forward a few hours and we’re telling all the boys to get in the car to go out for dinner. We then come outside and they are literally pilfering through the Target bags. So what do we do? Not so gracefully say…oh sometimes the Easter bunny needs a helper and hope they forget what they saw when they get their Easter baskets a few days later.
Fast forward: Spring 2011:
Last week: As Easter approaches, Collin and I have been talking a lot about Good Friday, Easter, etc. Interwoven into these conversations, “Mommy, remember the silly Easter bunny from last year when he left our treats in your car? Wasn’t that so silly?” I just smile...
This week: Some mommy has picked up a few little Lego packets. They just may or may not be from the Easter bunny. A sweet little boy named Marcel happens to see a yellow Lego bag in the closet that is rarely opened (even if it does contain the vacuum…no comments please). Last night I come home from work and Marcel takes my hand, “MOMMY, COME HERE….I HAVE TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING!” I quickly diverted him and told them they were a surprise. I had given him one at a baseball game to keep him occupied (since he gets to go to the games of his three older brothers and not play yet). He hasn’t thought about the Easter bunny but is now asking when the next baseball game is…and was very disappointed when we didn't go to Jonathon's game today.
I think this Easter Bunny needs to go back to Easter Bunny 101 school!
PS Let me know what your best hiding spot is for the Easter Bunny and Santa...
