Yesterday, while the kids were at school, I stopped by Michaels to buy SweetPea some fun, foamy Easter stickers. As soon as we got home, she ran inside, grabbed a blank sheet of paper, sat down on a stool at the island in our kitchen and got to work. Five minutes into her creating, I walked through the kitchen to get at drink...
Me: "Very nice, Sweetie, what picture are you making?"
SweetPea: "I'm making the Easter Bunny's graveyard!"
Hit stop. Rewind.
Me: (Turns around and walks back to the island) "The Easter Bunny's...graveyard?"
SweetPea: "Yes, he's hiding eggs for his duck friends like he did for us at Easter."
Me: "Oh, you mean the BACKyard."
SweetPea: "The boy on Scooby Doo had a graveyard in his backyard."
Me: "Sweetie, I'm pretty sure the Easter Bunny doesn't have one in his backyard."
A tiny voice in my head screams "RUN before she asks you what a graveyard is!"
Me: (braces self for "the question") "Yes, Sweetie?"
SweetPea: "Can I have a peanut butter sandwich?"
PHEW, I dodged that one! Happy Easter, Happy Spring, and the next time you go by a graveyard, keep your eyes out for some pretty, colored Easter eggs.
