Happy Monday to all . . . it's just doesn't have the same ring as Happy Friday does it?
My son still believes (or at least pretends to believe) in the Easter Bunny, which I love. My daughter does not but she keeps her mouth shut because as soon as he doesn't believe anymore all the good stuff comes to an end. Same goes with Christmas. I told her as soon as he stopped believing there was no longer a need to have gifts from Santa, and Santa leaves all the good stuff at our house. Anyway, my daughter decided she didn't want to hunt for eggs this year, which works for me, because she wanted to sleep in. After I stopped laughing, and wiped the tears from my eyes, I told her it didn't work that way.
I wait until the last minute to do my Easter shopping. I do every year and every year I swear I'm going to be more prepared next year. I never am but the good intentions are there, I'm sure that has to count for something. So there I was on Saturday heading down to my local Wal Mart to pick up all the candy and stuff I needed for the baskets. This was my first mistake, Wal Mart. While I love the prices at this store, I hate shopping at this store. EVERYONE shops at this store and they put all kinds of crap in the way so it makes it hard to maneuver through the aisles. When I walked into Wal Mart on Saturday they had put all the candy, baskets, grass crap and coloring kits RIGHT THERE. So you wouldn't miss it. And let me tell ya, it was hard to miss the huge crowd of people blocking the damn entrance!!!!! Who thought this was a good idea???? What brilliant mind said out loud, for everyone to hear, "hey, let's line up all the candy at the entrance, so people won't miss it. Let's take it out of the aisle with all the Easter stuff and stick it right in front." Who does that and who agrees with that dope???
Sorry, I'm better now.
After I found M&M's, Cadbury creme eggs, jelly beans and such I headed over to the kid's clothes section. I don't line my kid's baskets with that green messy grass crap any more. I use pajamas. Brilliant, I know. *giggle* It doesn't leave behind nearly the mess that grass does. I used the grass one year and I was finding it for years to come after that. I think that stuff multiplies, I really do. So after the jammie shopping was done I got the heck out. Next year, I'm going to get all of it done early so I don't have to deal with this mess, I swear.
Do your kids still believe in the bunny? If not, what age did they stop believing? What age did you stop believing?
