Can you believe it is almost Easter and April and there is still snow? Yuck! On Wednesday I sent my girl to preschool in a sweater, complete with the sunglasses she insisted on only to find out it was outdoor day, yep mommy fail! We have just gotten to the point of being done with this and honestly 30s don't feel bad anymore. With the hassle of jackets off and on in the car seat we just opt for a sweater instead. Luckily preschool had a stash of clothes!
Like I have mentioned before we go to a church preschool despite not going to church frequently but she is getting more out of this than sitting through a service (please no negative comments on our choices). The combination is great balance, they not only learned the story of Easter and hammered nails to the cross (brave teacher) but also took part in an egg hunt. I helped with the party and once again had a fun day, until I learned that Easter lilies are delivered that day, by the time we left I was miserable thanks to my allergy to them. The better part, guess how I discovered this: I was in a friend's wedding holding a bouquet of these in front of the church wondering why my chest was itching and I couldn't stop sneezing, ugh!
|What is this end for?|
Preschool Easter once again involved massive amounts of candy, marshmallows, lemonade and cookies, ugh! So what are we doing to make it healthier?
Some healthier basket ideas:
- Hair bands
- A small stuffed animal
- Crayons and drawing paper
- A small piece of dark chocolate
- Dried fruit
- Sidewalk chalk
- Notes from the Easter Bunny
- Clothes (you buy them anyways, right?)
What are you putting in a healthy Easter basket? I think for O it is the joy of finding the eggs not necessarily what is in them. She got a Blow Pop at school, asked to look at it and proceeded to unwrap it, tell me it was red and sticky and walk to the garbage to throw it away saying "I don't like suckers, can I have the chocolate?"
Happy Easter, have a great weekend! Any fun plans? We are hoping it is nice enough to grill Easter dinner.
