Just like every other major holiday or special day (not sure about St. Patrick's day), we've been negotiating how much practise is really required before Easter arrives. Still a month away, all the available information available on what comes next?has been coming from the store displays that have handily convinced my son that it will happen any minute. The pastel foil eggs and bunny paraphernalia have put my youngest into panic induced Easter trials all week. We have to be ready. We cannot be ill-equipped.
I caved and permitted a "practice" easter egg hunt (marbles and peppermints) on the weekend. One's hunting skills need to be up to date, I suppose.
