My four-year-old is the one who created drama today. The day started out great. He ran into our bedroom and said, "The Easter bunny came. He really came. Come on, let me show." So, he grabbed my hand and pulled me out of bed to show me the eggs in the corners of the couch. It was all very exciting.
UNTIL, he had to get dressed for church. I had his outfit laid out in the living room. He puts it on and my husband asks me if I thought our son was eight instead of four when I picked this sweater. My son turns the corner and has these saggy butt pants on that are at least two inches too long and a sweater the goes down to his knees.
That started the melt down. I can't take the blame for this. There doesn't seem to be any consistency in kids' clothes. I bought the same size I always do. So, my husband finds an old button down shirt and a sweater vest that is too small, but it looks better than the first choice. The only problem? My son,with this very serious face, shows me how the sleeves don't go down to his wrist and "mommy, this just won't do." I had to laugh at his perceptiveness.
It's the middle of the afternoon now and he still hasn't taken off his Easter outfit. I guess he got used to it!
What happened with your kids this Easter? Did everything go as planned or did you have to regroup at the last minute too? Tell me your Easter story.
