We had a really wonderful Easter. We woke up and did the candy, egg hunt and baths for the kids and visited my family. We all ate and laughed while the kids blew bubbles and smothered themselves in chocolate. Believe it or not, Rhys was actually saying "cheese" in this photo below.
Easter is a hard time for mothers of very small children because the kids are so pumped with sugar and exhausted at the same time, which is an interesting combination. I think all baskets full of candy for kids should come with bottles of wine and bubble bath for the mothers. Olivia usually says very sweetly,
"Mommy, can I please have a cup of milk? I'm ready for a nice little nap."
When we got home on Easter, she was so tired that she ripped off her clothes, threw herself on the kitchen floor and flailed around stark naked while crying for a cup of milk and a nap. Most of the time, tantrums are irritating but days like that are down right hilarious!
Easter was beautiful and a bit breezy so we got the kite out and although I was in a dress and wedges, I had a blast running around in the field in the mud.
I wore my brand new dress, courtesy of eShakti.com. I fell in love with this dress- the mustard color, the neckline..and I love that it has pockets. The last eShakti dress that they sent me was below-the-knee and a bit long so I ordered this one above-the-knee, which I don't usually like and what do you know? I feel like it's too short. Yep, call me Goldilocks. I also wish it had a little more torso area too. I'm short-waisted with a large bust as it is so I feel like I'm a whole lot of skirt and legs in this dress but I don't know, maybe that's not such a bad thing. I think I'll stick to the below-the-knee eShakti dresses from now on because you can always hem a skirt.
