We took Caleb for his first Easter Egg hunt. Caris came along too, but slept the whole time. This girl likes to sleep.
Caleb spent a lot of his â€œhuntâ€ time walking around andâ€¦
â€¦ watching the other toddlers run around picking up eggs.
And yes, thatâ€™s a sand bucket that Iâ€™m holding â€˜cuz Mommy didnâ€™t have enough time to buy one of those cute Easter baskets, and sheâ€™s too cheap to ever consider spending $5 on one at the actual event.
Chris and I noticed that events like this bring out this strange side in parents. Now these parents might normally be easygoing, laidback people. But when itâ€™s time for their child to find eggs at an Easter Egg Hunt, they certainly arenâ€™t laidback anymore. Caleb was in the 1-2 year old hunt, and these parents were still yelling and carrying their kid as fast as they could to each egg. These kids can walk. I would watch Chris point out an egg to Caleb. As Calebâ€™s walking over to get it, another parent carrying their kid runs over and shouts, â€œGet the egg, get the egg (or some form of this phrase).â€ Some of these kids had like 20 eggs. Caleb got 2. Thatâ€™s OK. He got all those eggs on his own.
Caleb had fun at the egg hunt, but truthfully, he most enjoyed the toddler play area.
