She loved searching for eggs, opening them and finding goodies. I think she was surprisingly more excited by the hair barrettes and necklaces the Easter Bunny brought, than by the candy.
A close second to watching Em's joy at finding eggs during the egghunt, was listening to her tell my in-laws about our "adventure" on the way to her MyGym class last week. I'm paraphrasing, the conversation...it was a
Em: Guess what happened on the way to MyGym?
Em (VERY excited): Mommy got pulled over by a police officer!
Father-in-law: She did? Was she doing something wrong?
Emma (In a Conspiratorial Mommy's Been Naughty Voice): Yes! She was turning where she wasn't supposed to be, so the police officer pulled her over.
Mother-in-law: Did she get a ticket?
Emma (Excited again): Nooo. He gived her another chance! She just got a warning.
Remind me not to tell Emma any secrets!
FYI---U-turns are legal in Florida. This took me a little while to acclimate to after moving here, as I was raised and learned to drive in Ohio. I've adapted pretty well, or so I thought. However, on the way to Em's gymnastics class, I was stopped at a red light behind another car. When the light turned green, I followed the other car around the median, and proceeded to the lane I needed to get on the highway. This was when the officer pulled me over and informed me that I had U-turned in a No-U-turn zone. Oops. The rest of Em's story was accurate...I only had a "warning." Whew!
Another Easter Emmaism----today she came running out of the bathroom, "Look! I think the Easter Bunny used up all of our toilet paper. Let me show you! This is all that's left," she then proceeded to show me the roll with a measly 2 squares of TP left on it. That darn Easter Bunny! Tee-hee!
