My Easter traditions change a little bit every year and I’m still working out what I want to do. The dream I had growing up of holidays has been edited because things are just different with a special needs child.
Three years ago we just moved into our new house and we’re just getting settled with a 3 year old and a baby.
Two years ago my older son got released from the hospital after his 3rd open heart surgery on Easter Sunday.
Last year we started forming our traditions. Some things like coloring eggs and doing an Easter egg hunt just started. But last year we also got a puppy and she jumped up on the counter and ate maybe 20 deviled eggs. Let’s just say a dog that eats that many hard boiled eggs puts a damper on the festivities.
So this year we are trying again! I took off Friday and Monday to get things together. I’m hoping to someday get the holidays together so they are easy, fun and memorable.
