Yep, it was the Easter bunnies birthday or something on Sunday so I had an egg hunt ready for my two. Unfortunately it bucketed it down so we brought the hunt inside (in true British style as soon as we had it all ready it dried right up!) I’d always wanted a hunt as a child so I think I was shamelessly living it out through them. Bella took not even the slightest bit of interest as I suspected would happen but Logan was on task and it was brilliant to see him so excited as this is really the first Easter he’s been aware of which at four is pretty good.
I do wonder how much Logan believes as he is so literal with most things, maybe he just believes a rabbit came with a sack of chocolate eggs (because that’s so less far fetched than Santa…oh and the tooth fairy!) because I tell him, maybe he just goes with the flow. Whatever he thinks he was very excited to find his carrot nibbled down and trail of glitter in it’s place (see I can do crafty-crap, Pin that!!) He also loved following the rabbit trail until he got to the clues set by Nanny, which were I’ll admit, a bit basic. Logic isn’t one of the stronger areas in his skill-set but even so a few still left him stumped..it’s a good job I was around to crack codes like “Eggy-bread!” Yes, it was by the bread!
Bella took the opportunity to swipe Nanny’s phone while we imbeciles chased a 4 year old around the house looking for plastic eggs! Her stance on the proceedings changed significantly when her brother presented all the eggs he’d found…including all of hers as well. Some may say she didn’t get involved others will say why have a dog and bark yourself?
I’ve had two wired, chocolate coated children ever since who have been laughing manically at basically nothing. I did manage to get Logan to eat a carrot at dinner by saying if he didn’t the Easter bunny would take his eggs back. Bribery and corruption for the win at the dinner table! I put my hands up and confess to it but before you start judging me know that he liked it and then ate two more!
Bella spent the rest of the day playing with the empty plastic eggs and bucket, anything small that she can carry around she just loves. Usually she carries her Peppa Pig handbag stuffed with an assortment of small toys but she’s been known to carry the same toys around in a welly, my shoe, a cup. She really is quite random sometimes but at least today her collection was well on theme!
This is NOT a sponsored post and included an Easter Egg Hunt set from Tesco who did not give it to me for free, thanks for making me know understand the value of money.
Watching: Flip sake I watched Wuthering Heights and now I want to throw myself off a cliff or go and drown in one of the Dales super large puddles! I love a good period drama but I may need to stick to the other Bronte sisters in future…or Kate Bush’s song version which J’adore!
