That big furry bunny disappointed the kids on Easter morning. We decided to spend more money on something they could both enjoy, and only do a little Easter baskets for each of them this year. It wasn't until 11:00 PM on Saturday night when I went to set up that darn toy and found it broken...there was no time to make it right. Wah, wah, wah. Bunny fail. Savannah was in tears, and Devin spent the entire day wondering why he couldn't actually play with the cool toy that was still in the box.
The bunny had some making up to do yesterday. We returned that toy, and bought new toys...which the kids were happy with. Although Savannah is still asking why the Easter Bunny delivered something broken...doesn't he know...Mom, that is not cool! I get it Savannah, the Easter Bunny screwed up...let's move on already. We may actually never recover, because that Savannah has a memory as sharp as a tack.
I was so close to spoiling the Easter Bunny fun when the complaining seemed like it may never end...and then I realized I have other kids that I want to experience the magic. Although she will figure it all out long before Devi and Brin, I am not quite ready to give it all up.
I am just feeling lucky that we don't have another holiday for awhile...I am exhausted.
