Dumb Easter Bunny

I hope you all had a nice Easter.  We had a grand time at my pad.  It all started bright and early when my kids ran downstairs to see what the Easter Bunny left in their baskets.

I heard them, but didn't feel like getting out of bed.  About a half hour later, I got dressed and went down to see what they were up to.  What they were up to was trouble. On the kitchen table in front of them, were their Easter baskets.  Empty Easter baskets.  All that remained of the candy that was inside were wrappers. And those were strewn all over the kitchen table.

"You guys did not seriously eat all your candy for breakfast, did you?" I asked.

"No, Mama, there are a couple pieces left," my son said.

I gave the boy one of my mean mommy faces.  "You're not allowed to eat chocolate for breakfast!"

"But Mama," he said.  "You're the Easter Bunny.  If you didn't want us to have chocolate for breakfast, you shouldn't have put it in our basket!"

Argh!

  4. What can you say to that? (I always took pix of them with their chocolatey faces) It's the bunny's fault. . .

    1. Of course it's the bunny's fault. Too bad they know who the bunny is! ;)

  7. Child logic. Hard to argue with that.
    Shoulda blamed George W. Bush.
    That seems to work. Or so I've heard.

  15. A child's logic always seems so... simple? How can you argue with that!?

  16. "Mean mommy face" made me grin. I think they have figured you out. How can you be mad when they give you such good reasons?
