First of all, I have to admit something… I didn’t go to church on Easter. A few years back, I got irritated with the over crowded-ness of Easter service and never went again. I think it’s ridiculous to think it’s more important to attend service on one or two days out of the year, so I don’t feel guilty at all. I read the reading to my daughter and I think that is what is important anyways, right? Like, probably the most important? I know most parents go all out for Easter, but it’s just really not my thing. On the last day of school before Good Friday, one of the mom’s asked me if I had everything ready for the weekend. Lol, I was confused and she probably thought I was an idiot. I said, oh, I don’t know, I don’t think we’re doing anything this weekend. She said, Easter? haha.
I do still keep the tradition of an egg hunt and the kids both really enjoyed it this year! Freddy actually understood that he was supposed to be finding eggs and it was very cute to see how excited he was when he found them. Luckily, he wasn’t very competitive with his sister. He still looks up to her and thinks she’s amazing. He didn’t mind at all that she was getting more eggs than him. I put a couple videos of the kids hunting eggs on my You Tube channel.
So, it’s been a few days since Easter and I keep finding jelly beans in random places. I always throw out all the holiday candy my kids acquire, but I decided to let them keep a few jelly beans. Today, Freddy was reaching under the TV cabinet (his typical gross behavior) and pulled something out and put it in his mouth. I asked him what it was and with his mouth full he said, “jelly beanies mama”. Ha! Beanies? I don’t know where he heard that, but it cracks me up.
