Egg hunt in June.
When I think of my growing grand-baby, I of course get excited but that excitement is also met with trepidation !
-Will it like me ?
-Will I remember how to do all the necessary baby things ?
-Will I have any energy to DO ANY of the necessary baby things ?
-Will I have the energy to do anything at all ?
-Will my daughter even trust me with the baby anyway ?
After all, I'm old and tired and on the internet writing a blog...........
But as I pondered these trepidations and walked the dogs around our woodsy trail (multi-tasking at its finest!), I came across an Easter Egg !
It still had a prize in it........ 27 cents !!!
How could my kids have missed this one ? It was right on the leaves !
Looked down and saw another one !
It still had a prize in it........$1.00 !!! And it was only slightly moldy !
How did my kids miss this one too ?
Putting it in perspective, my children are all adults. It's not like they are 10,9,8 and 3, falling down, spilling their eggs and running to mom and dad about it !
We still have an Easter Egg Hunt every year though, to remember past glories and triumphs of Prize Eggs containing $10 or $5 or of pushing each other to the ground and stealing ALL their eggs while they lay on the ground actually wounded !
Who wants to forget that ?
We have such fun that we also have a Turkey egg hunt on Thanksgiving !
More chances for prize eggs and flesh wounds !
The grand-baby is gonna love it !
And the fact that she/he can come over to Re-moms house 2 1/2 months later and still find treasures makes me think it might not be so bad !
My worries are for naught.
I got this.
Kids LOVE Egg Hunts AND Band-aids !
I got this !
(The third egg is one Re-dad found a few days earlier !)
Thanks for reading my blog !!
See you soon !
