Easter basket done, eggs hidden.

The basket really is pretty paltry and I feel kind of bad about that (especially since there were so many things that I really wanted to put in it), but I should get over that - L really will not care. He’s twelve months old. I should take advantage of this while I can. Biscuit shaped like a bunny, a toy iron, a toy car, some bath letters and a cute little Easter outfit will more than suffice.

This Easter Bunny is taking herself to bed.

This is the first year I can remember where I won’t be dying any eggs for Easter. I’m kind of sad about it, but there really would be no point doing it. Next year.

Instead we have gingerbread eggs. We’re going to put one in the middle of his tunnel and maybe one in his shoe. That will be fun. :)

L spent about ten minutes in the toy section of the store today desperate to have cooking toys, my little ponies, and dolls, haha. He also frequently gravitates towards the “girly” clothes - probably because they tend to be in brighter colours… The boys’ stuff seems to be almost entirely dark and/or muted (at least it is where I shop).

People get really wound up about the fact that I ignore the boys’ and girls’ sections at stores, but when I put L in his cute salmon jacket with a flower and ladybug on the front (from the girls’ section), all I get are compliments about how cute he looks in his sweet little jacket.

Should we hide a couple of eggs for L? I don’t know.

It really would only be a couple because he won’t quite get the concept of an egg hunt. Although I do think he’d probably enjoy finding one or two tucked in the middle of his tunnel or in his shoe.

And I need to get a small Easter basket sorted out. Blugh. We don’t really have the money since it was just his birthday but a few small things won’t break the bank. The hard part is figuring out what small things to buy.

I would just like to be able to live my life without ex-pupils of James’ thinking they are being hilarious by harassing us (in really stupid ways, but harassment all the same).

Anonymity is much nicer than notoriety.

Fran is an angel. She made this beautiful quilt for L. Almost entirely hand stitched, too. I can’t tell you how touched I am.

My parents are getting a new dishwasher and giving us their old one. I am so excited. You have no idea. None.

Don’t ever tell me you are considering getting a dog, because I will find a dog for you and fall in love with the idea of you owning it only to be deeply disappointed when you remind me you were only “thinking about it” not seriously looking for a pet.

Our family photos are gorgeous, but I hate how I look in all but one of them. I want to get past that and see the pictures for what they are, which is a family having a great time together, but all I see is how much I can’t stand my body.
