Here are some things I have learned while trying to Survive Easter Sunday in the Suburbs:
*Painting eggs with my girls is a quiet joy.
*I will always buy too much chocolate.
*I will always eat too much of said chocolate.
*It does not matter how far ahead you plan your daughters outfits for Easter Day. Go ahead! Plan them a week in advance, lay them out neatly the night before, because the morning it is time to put them on, one of those little divas is going to decide she requires a wardrobe change.
*Offering to take the same dish to both family functions. Brilliant. Double the dessert recipe and pack 2 bottles of wine. Easy Peasy.
*Trying to see both Hubby’s side of the Family and My side of the Family on Easter Sunday is not a good idea. Too much food, too much rushing, and again with the too much chocolate. I should have worn stretchy pants.
*Meeting a newborn foal can calm down even the rowdiest child. They are awe inspiring.
*No matter how crazy your family, I am blessed to have them.
