What to muse about today?

Today Teagan colored easter eggs for the first time. It was almost fun. Well, parts were fun. Actually, most of it was fun. She was so excited when she saw all the colors. She was amazed when the eggs changed colors.

I have to stop and remember that she doesn’t know about things… Why you shouldn’t bang the eggs together, or bend the holders, or eat the wax crayon. Some times I assume she’s a little person that’s been around, not one that’s brand new. In a way, she does still have that new car smell. I need to remember that more often.

She really enjoyed it, and she did slow down a bit, not being the total dervish that she normally is.

She didn’t quite understand why she shouldn’t put her fingers in the cups of color… She has some Easter egg colored fingers now.

And the dye took much, much longer than I remember. Longer than a pre-schooler can be expected to wait. You can see her willing the egg to turn pink.

I’m sure that when I was a kid, the eggs picked up color a lot faster! Or are those just rose colored glasses?


Our eggs did turn out ok, after all. And a little wax isn’t going to hurt her.

I am looking forward to next year, when we may be a bit more artistic with our eggs.

She’s looking forward to having more deviled eggs too.

    We added 3 tbsp of vineagar to the Paas and it made them more vibrant. We are bringing my mom a few in the hospital today. happy Easter!

  2. We had our first egg hunt today. I’d thought about putting them in plain sight, but not that I’d have to explain the entire concept. After showing her the first egg, though, there was no stopping her. Or getting the basket back.

      That’s how Teagan was last year. She wasn’t sure why she was getting the colored eggs, just that we kept cheering when she found them. My mom had put raisins in them, and she was over the moon!

      She didn’t quite get it this year either, but needed much less encouragement, and we could hide them a bit better too :) So much fun!
