Trying to explain about Santa was difficult enough, but what’s up with the Easter Bunny?  Where does he live and “why he so big?”  Who is his mama and does he “has a sister?”  Why he not a girl?   Who open the door for him?  A tunnel let him in?  He’s friends with Santa and the Fairy Godmother and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?  Just a few examples of the many, many, questions that have come up in anticipation of a giant “muloji” with huge teeth coming into our safe and comfortable home in the middle of the night.  Totally creepy.  Mama’s happy to let a giant stranger in here when we’re all asleep?  Right when everyone was really starting to believe mama was trustworthy.  An awesome Easter basket might help, but I don’t think Francine cares what he might leave behind.  She’s not excited to have him here, and don’t even get her started on losing a tooth.  She’s just not going to, she thinks.  Keta will lose one first and I’m expecting Francine to stay awake and terrified all night.  Tooth fairy, no thank you!

I’ve scheduled an emergency egg dying session.  Keta and Francine have to take two dozen boiled eggs to school to dye them.  No way am I missing another first.  Nope, missing three years of firsts is enough.  I don’t care that we will end up with nine or ten dozen hard boiled eggs, we will all dye eggs together their first time.  Come over for deviled eggs, egg sandwiches, doro wat, and ideas for other things to do with hard boiled eggs.  It’ll be great!

    We had a book as kids called “the country bunny and the golden shoes” that was a super sweet (and pro-girls!) story about the Easter bunny … It may not make them less weary, but it’s really good 🙂
