Today marked our 4th Easter in a week. We did a egg hunt last weekend with friends, which resulted in tons of candy. Mason had an Easter party at school, which also provided candy. We had a surprise Easter basket visit yesterday (Thanks, Nana and Papa!), and then today went out to my mom’s for our official Easter celebration (Thanks for the delicious meal, Mom!). Needless to say, we are overloaded on candy and sugar. There are few days throughout the year when I get sick of sugary sweets. Halloween, the day of my cookie swap, and Easter. But here I sit pondering whether I will go get a peanut butter egg (made at a local chocolate shop with dark chocolate) or another cake pop. What do you think? Are you asking, “What’s a cake pop?” Well, behold… Cake on a stick!
Jeremy and I are trying to figure out how to split up the candy loot to take to our offices for sharing, which we know will upset Mason. The girl is treat-happy right now. More reason for us to get it out of here. Honestly the girl gets addicted. Many times, we have had to rid the house of treats for a couple of weeks to get her past the overload. She eventually forgets about asking for treats, and we feel we can slowly bring them back in to her life. Then something like Easter comes up, and all that effort is thrown out the window. How can you deprive these sweet innocent faces of chocolate?
Don’t let them suck you into their charm! The chocolate must go! (insert devilish laugh)
