It's a good thing Charlie won't remember this Easter, because it really felt like a fail to me. It just seemed to sneak up on me, and before I knew it, it was too late to make any plans. Still, we did make it to see the Easter Bunny at the mall. Charlie was traumatized, so much so that he actually pushed the Easter Bunny away (see the fifth picture down).
And just in case you were wondering if he was really upset:
We got invited to an egg hunt on Saturday, but we had plans to celebrate Roy's birthday by going to the zoo. Those plans got delayed by a memorial service for a family friend who lost her mother, but one of the cool things about the gathering was that there was a mini egg hunt for all the kids.
Charlie got two eggs. Great for eating!
On Easter we briefly entertained the notion of heading out to LA for the day, but we just didn't feel like it. Instead Charlie stayed in his pajamas until 5 PM, upon which time we dressed him in his very hip Easter outfit and took him outside for photos with his awesome Easter basket.
I bought Charlie this cute little rabbit hat, but it didn't really fit his big ol' melon:
As you can see, the Easter Bunny was very generous, and Charlie was not at all traumatized by that.
I was a little sad on Easter because it was Charlie's last first holiday. My baby is growing up and will be a year old soon. Still, I can't wait for all the holidays to come, even if I fail at them like I did this Easter.
