March Madness

March madness? At our house, it doesn’t involve basketballs or brackets or neon yellow sneakers. It’s all about the eggs. And the chocolate. And making sure your siblings don’t get one more string of crinkly fake grass than you in their baskets. Not to mention jelly beans.

The hunt for eggs is mostly complete before Mommy drags herself out of bed toward the gleeful shrieks coming from downstairs.

The dog finds eggs, too. And eats them. This does not turn out well later.

Small children devouring chocolate bunnies results in sticky fingers, chins, cheeks, eyebrows, elbows, nostrils, knees, toes, and ear lobes.

As if more sugar was needed, there is syrup for dinner. Oh, and, bunny-shaped pancakes.

But … No yucky black-licorice jelly beans enter the premises under any circumstances.

Three sets of small fingers search all baskets a minimum of seven times to ensure that tribute has been distributed equally.

The cat protests the bunny ears forced on his head by eating some faux purple fur.

No one falls asleep until at least two hours after bedtime. And, somehow, there is no leftover Easter candy for Mommy and Daddy to sneak.

If I get to the grocery store early enough Monday morning, there are always a few teeny-tiny bags of heaven-sent Cadbury mini-eggs hidden behind the giant generic chocolate coins on clearance.

And that one last dyed egg? Will just not be found.

What signals Easter at your house? How do your pets involve themselves in the celebration? And where did you find that last egg?

  1. What a great post..I’m still chuckling! The last egg was just popped in my mouth a half hour ago!

  2. Don’t do a lot for Easter now that the kid is grown, but I did put some ears on goats and kids in baskets.🙂

  3. Girl, do NOT hide real eggs! That’s what plastic is for. Love the bunny pancakes.

  4. You always bring a smile to my face and rekindle memories from my own childhood and the “Wonder Years” with my children! Now I’m enjoying all the special times through the eyes and hearts of my grandchildren.

    • Aw, thanks! It’s funny how so much of parenting is like re-living your childhood, but from “the other side.”🙂
