The Grandest Baby in the Easter Parade
Ah, Easter--the best christian candy holiday there is. Being an old lady, I do get nostalgic for Candies Past, specifically the sugar eggs with the dioramas inside. Not that you eat them or anything. Just that they were so pretty and unobtainable. I see some knockoff ones every now and then but they never seem to be as exciting as the ones at that bakery in the Midway Mall that had the unbelievable Hungarian Tart cookies...
But enough about my childhood--let's get to my child's childhood. This was Donny's second Easter. He was 5 days old last Easter and, frankly, we were in no shape then to worry about sugar eggs. This year was much more festive. Donny got a basket with some stuffed plush Peeps and a book called Bunny and Me. It's a little insipid but the photos are cool. I lost my get up and go before I got to the husband's gifts but I did get him the chocolate he requested. He didn't get me a basket but he won points for filling my casket shaped cake pan with candy and and Aleister Crowley CD.
Easter dinner was up at the in laws. Ceil, the president of Donny's fan club was there and, as usual, she had to exclaim over Donovan. The adjectives "Perfect!" "Gorgeous!" and "Magnificent!" were used repeatedly. Donny got some more goodies there including a basket all his own that had some little rubber ducks in it. Good choice for The Boy Who Likes To Throw Things.
All in all a nice holiday. Can't wait till next year when he can actually hunt for eggs. Did I mention I like Easter?
