Happy Easter, Bad Mama Moment and Scrapping the Music

You know.... Trouble #1 and #2 are getting older. I don't really get THAT into easter decorations and easter eggs and all that stuff, so we kept it low key. They did want to color eggs, so I did with Trouble #1 when she was home from school sick. I did make up a little easter basket for the girls, but was I going to get up at the crack of dawn to hide the darn eggs? No, not this easter bunny.

Yeah, that's what I THOUGHT. This morning, when I finally rolled my tired behind out of bed... there was T#1 BEGGING me to hide the eggs. I told her it was kind of silly, since she knew it was me hiding the eggs and not the easter bunny, but no, she wanted me to hide the eggs. So I went outside, hid the eggs, came back in and told T#2 to get dressed, and out they went to look for eggs. And wouldn't you know it, when T#2 found the last egg, I made some silly comment about having to hide the eggs in my bare feet and you could see the lightbulb come on in her head, the hamsters running, the little wheels spinnign.... Mama, YOU are the Easter Bunny! oh no, I blew it. My child was still a believer. Bad Mama, bad Mama!

But, all is good. I ended up making up the elaborate story how I had been the one to dye the eggs, since the easter bunny didn't really have time for ALL the eggs and luckily the neighbor mama told the girls she had had to hide the eggs for her daughter because the bunny had been too busy and had just dropped the eggs off. It's all about division of labor, KWIM? And all is good for the girls and T#2 is still a believer.

And last, but not least, I finally managed to scrap a LO for Scrapping the Music. Love, love, love this song.
