1. If one allows one’s four year old to pick out her own Easter dress, one may end up with an insanely manic mixture of tulle, glitter, ribbons, bows, flowers, and polka dots.
In fact, it was The Ultimate Anti-Smock.
2. If one aspires to photograph four cousins four years old and under, one will have to take dozens of photos to get one semi-all-looking-in-the-same-direction-and-not-sticking-out-any-tongues-or-slapping-each-other-accidentally shot…
But one will most likely, in the end, find more pleasure in the outtakes.
“Pick Out the Future Cheerleader”
And, my personal favorite,
“Noah’s Indignation at Tessa’s Hand.”
3. If one is overcome with Mommy-guilt at just not getting around to making the whole Easter Egg dying thing happen one year, one can placate one’s guilt (and thrill one’s child) by simply making chalk eggs together instead.
In fact, chalk eggs are a lot less messy than dyed ones.
And easier to find on an Easter Egg Hunt.
And don’t reek when they rot.
We may have a new Easter tradition.
4. A lot can change in a year…
…which, incidentally, is exactly what happened on Easter Weekend 2006.
A 2011 sequel is NOT in the plans.
