The Easter Bunny is not Santa
After JR got home from school yesterday I told him we were going to see the Easter Bunny. Of course he was thrilled and immediately told me he was "going to make his list". I tried to explain that we don't make a list to go see the Easter Bunny, which he was fine with, since he had "his list" memorized in his head. He also decided that it was a special occasion and that he needed to wear his belt. I didn't know a child could get so excited about wearing a belt. The visit with the Easter Bunny was a big success as JR was telling me that "the Easter Bunny said 'yes' " to all his toy requests. Unfortunately, the "real" Easter Bunny has already gone shopping and was unaware of "the list". I told JR that the Easter Bunny might not be able to bring him all the things he wants since everything needs to fit in his basket. I was thinking maybe the Easter Bunny could leave JR a note to soothe over the missing "list items". The little boys didn't seem to even notice the Easter Bunny. Look how Kyle is laid out posing. Reed did open his eyes for the picture, but in general, the boys were busy catching up on the sleep they had missed all day. Speaking of sleep, Jason and I were convinced we were going to have a great night since I had a bad day...ummmm, not so much. We actually had one of the most sleepless nights yet. About 4:30 Jason finally got Reed to sleep on his chest, and I resigned to holding Kyle on my chest and sleeping in the chair. I know it was after 4:30 because Andy Griffith was already over. It's pretty obvious that you aren't getting enough sleep when you can tell the time by the late night TV programs. Thankfully they are sleeping peacefully in their bouncy chairs right now...I haven't heard a peep out of them since their last feeding. Woo-Hoo!
