Stu had another fun drive into day care this morning. As he fires up the car, Take a Walk by Passion Pit comes on. One of Teagan’s favorite songs! And one of Ashlin’s too. They both love singing along to the chorus. Anyway, Teagan barks out a loud, urgent “Dada!” startling Stu. Long pause. Eventually she follows up with her 27 ums, trying to get all the words that are swirling through her head out. “Um um um um um. Dada, if this song was written by bunnies, it would be “take a hop” not “take a walk.”
We had a great weekend. Saturday was filled with the girls decorating eggs, dinner out (again!) and cupcakes.
We had each girl color eggs separately, first Teagan then Ashlin. I was hoping to minimize the chaos! Teagan did great, listened pretty well and had fun. Ashlin had a blast coloring her set of eggs, though we needed to adapt a bit. Getting the eggs out of the cups wasn’t too easy for her, and she may have dyed her fingers orange. Still, she thought she was teh bomb, and really enjoyed it.
Ashlin didn’t quite understand about the candle on her cupcake though, that maybe she shouldn’t try to touch the fire. She went and put her finger in. Poor baby. She got over it quickly enough though, cupcakes totally take all boo-boos away.
Sunday, we had our egg hunt. We hid eggs in pairs, and told the girls that if they found any, they could keep one and give their sister the other. It worked pretty well! Often they went together and Teagan would hand over one of the two eggs. Ashlin was pretty happy to let her, though every now and then she’d go off on her own and find an egg, which she’d let Teagan come over and pick up.
Breakfast was fun, lunch was better. It was followed by a special cake my mom made. The girls loved it! Ashlin wanted to eat the entire ear!
I think they both had a good Easter!
