Filling the plastic eggs for tomorrow’s egg hunt.
My cousin Emz told me that there will be an Easter Egg Hunt at a park in town tomorrow. She will be taking her two kids there and she invited me and DD to go too. We have to bring eggs for the Egg Hunt and snacks to share with everyone. So this evening, my darling daughter and I went to Dollar General to buy some plastic eggs, basket, and treats. We also bought a couple packs of little girls’ rings with Disney Princess and Doc McStuffins. She love those characters. DD was very excited and she helped me fill the plastic eggs with the goodies.
At bedtime, she wanted me to read Max’s Easter Surprise (Max and Ruby) and The Story Of The Easter Bunny by Katherine Tegen. These two books are her favorites as of the moment. Reading a book is part of our bedtime routine.
We are looking forward to a pleasant weather tomorrow. I bet the children will have a wonderful time egg hunting. This will be my first time to join this group of moms’ event. My cousin had mentioned that she’s a member of this moms’ group. So tomorrow I’ll try to get to know them and may join.
Today’s plan is ruined. It’s not because of the weather this morning when we got severe thunderstorm with heavy rains and hail in our area. (For hail video, please click Hail On Easter Sunday.) And it is definitely not because my husband doesn’t want to go to the Easter Sunday events. It’s because of me. Why? I woke up with migraine and cramps. My once-a-month visitor came at wrong timing! My did not pressure me about the plan because he knows how I feel in times like this.
I felt very bad because we we’re not at the Easter Sunday worship service. And I wasn’t able to take my darling daughter to the birthday party and Easter Egg Hunt. Everything was planned and well-prepared yesterday but I was not feeling well the whole day today!
See, when us moms get sick, everything in the house is affected – appointments and commitments, chores, errands…everything planned is ruined. Our husbands can help with a few things, but still we feel upset because we want to be always there to do the job. In my situation, I always get this discomfort every month. This time it came on a special occasion. Anyway, my husband told me not to worry too much about it. Kaye is too young to remember that she skipped an Easter Egg Hunt.
Ugh! What a day!
My husband and I had a talk about me driving to Tyler for a visit and spend the night there with the family during the week. “I think I can.”, I said. And now my darling daughter and I traveled East today by ourselves. We are here at her grandparents’ house for a visit and see the cousins too because we can’t come over on Easter Sunday for we already have an early commitment. And because daddy is at work, just the two of us head to Tyler. It’s mother and daughter’s first trip out of town.
So darling daughter and I are spending the night at grandparents’ house. We went to see her cousins when we arrived this afternoon. They played kids’ games such as hide-and-seek, tag, and puzzles for a little while then we ordered spaghetti with meatballs, salad, and rolls for dinner.
Sometimes like today, my little girl doesn’t take a nap when she knows we’re going to Na-na and Paw-paw’s house. It’s always the excitement and the thought that she will be with her grandparents that keep her up. Kids are really amazing when it comes to bonding with their grandparents. They love them so much that they don’t want to be away from grandma and grandpa. I am very thankful that my darling daughter has a very loving grandparents. ‘Wish them more years in this world.
