Is it mean that we are now making her earn her own Easter candy? Perhaps. But if we didn’t, she would eat all the choc-wit in one sitting, work herself into a frenzied lather, pee on someone’s rug, and collapse into a heap in the middle of our kitchen.
Don’t ask me how I know.
Thankfully we had learned this lesson by Easter Sunday, so it was actually a peaceful day.
We were hosted by family friends, Raya and Neill.
In addition to her always fabulous flowers and food [must make: Ina Garten panzanella. HOLY COW!], Raya readied her home with MB appropriate toys– bunny and chicken wind-up toys. She had so much fun with them.
Shortly after lunch, the boy nodded off to sleep in Aunt Kay Kay’s lap, and it was time to go home for a family nap.
And now we’re on the downward slide toward summer! Mary Bullock is determined to teach herself how to swim, which is my new nightmare. I’m trying to resist the urge to buy her one of those swimsuits with the built-in floaties. [Laura, if you’re reading, I know you’re snarfing. Don’t worry, I won’t do it.]
We hope you all had a lovely and relaxing Easter!
