2. On Easter weekend, I took her to the egg hunt in our township. Yeah, she’s 16 months old and doesn’t know what an Easter egg hunt is. She doesn’t even know what an Easter egg is! Why did I take her? I don’t know. Just to get her used to the idea, perhaps? Maybe just so she could get out there with all of the other kids? I thought she’d have fun…and she did. She only found one egg since all the big kids were faster and got them all. She didn’t care though. She was tickled pink by her lone egg.
3. We had an Easter egg hunt just for her. Ha! She’s still too young to hunt for eggs. She didn’t know what to do, but when Grampy showed her that there were toys and chocolate to be found, she quickly caught on! FYI: Hubby and I don’t let Little One eat sugar and we were hoping that she wouldn’t have her first taste of chocolate until after she turned 2 or 3. Ummm…Too late. Apparently, she’s had chocolate without us knowing! We were told that she had no adverse reactions. Note to self: Grandparents are so different with grandkids than they are with their own kids.
4. Silly of me to dress Little One in her “Sunday Best” and think that she won’t get dirty when she eats. You’ve all seen the kid eat lasagna! You know she’s all about getting as much food on herself as possible.
5. Bunny ears! Need I say more? My poor kid is going to be mortified years from now when she sees photos of her wearing fluffy bunny ears. I admit, I thought it would be cute. Now I think it’s kind of
silly ridiculous stupid lame.
6. It’s foolish of us to get all in a huff when Little One gets her hands on EVERYTHING she’s not supposed to touch…especially when it’s our own fault for having so many “do not touch!” items within perfect reach/height for her busy little hands to grab. This was not my house. 🙂 Lola and Grampy have lots of lovely nick knacks from all over the world…and they’re all conveniently located for babies and toddlers. Actually, Little One’s family doctor once told me to get on my knees and crawl around the house as a baby would. That way we could see the world from their perspective and know how and what to baby-proof! Smart man.
7. Another silly thing I find myself doing as a new Mom is baking and decorating cupcakes at 2AM for my daughter’s friends! Silly because her friends are also toddlers and probably shouldn’t be eating cupcakes and icing! I don’t let Little One eat sugar, so perhaps Little One’s friends don’t either.
Okay, perhaps what’s sillier is that I was up at 2AM!
