Easter Lessons Learned

Do not let your almost 3 year-old play with the brightly colored grass in her Easter basket.


Do not try to vacuum up said grass without picking some up first or you will spend 30 minutes trying to unravel it all from the bottom of the machine.

Do not let your alomst 3 year-old mix the colors in those dye kits. Your Easter eggs will be a lovely shade of poo.

Do not forget your camera when your little one is looking this cute!

(no, that's not my house)

Do not, under any circumstances, give your almost 3 year-old any more Play-Doh (even if they come in cute little Easter egg shapes with bunny cut-outs)!!!!

Play-Doh and Easter Grass, the combination that will give any mom a reason to have a martini!

That grass is EVIL... And I got her playdoh eggs but I put them away very quickly.

Denise said...

Easter grass is pure evil!

We had poo coloured eggs too!

I avoid the grass. I don't make up baskets for the girls. I hide candy filled eggs about the house and let them collect them.

Angela made 6 orange eggs. There were other colors she just kept making orange ones.

Duuuude...don't even get me started on the evils of Easter grass.

I read somewhere that "Veggie Booty" (organic snack kind of like Cheez Doodles for those who don't know) makes a good, safe, edible substitute for Easter grass.

Unfortunately, they weren't selling it at the CVS I went to at midnight on Easter eve...lol

I've never seen Easter grass in flight like that. Too funny!

Hi, Thanks for the comment over at my place.
I also am a hater of Easter grass. I remember last year finding that stuff months later under the couch...it migrates and grows roots!
Cute pics, BTW...the color in your living room looks curiously similar to mine. You have nice taste!

The grass looks like a halo above her little head. Too freaking cute. And I love the paint color in that room.

oh, the almost 3 yr old is sooo cute!

and the easter grass in the vaccuum thing? I bet it smelled burned and nasty - melty, huh?

Great pics. By the way, the park that was photographed in my last post about my daughter's scooter is in the Succasunna/Roxbury area. Are you familar?

MrsFortune said...

It's a good thing she didn't mix up the grass, dye and playdoh for a tasty treat!

Christina said...

Playdoh will probably be banned from our house. I've seen permanent playdoh stains at the houses of friends where it was ground into the carpet. Yuck.

Good lessons to learn, though! I will stay away from the Easter grass for sure!

chelle said...

hehe We did the Easter egg dying thing!! Toddlers love green hands!

We make our own playdough and it has never stained anything.

Cute! I know what you mean about the Easter grass. I'm still finding pieces of it in my vacuum from last year.

Anonymous said...

Yes. I am please to say that the Christmas tree needles still hiding from the vacuum are now accompanied by Easter basket grass.

She is adorable.

The easter grass is dangerous in my house because my cat will eat it, and then we find it in the litter box... like a little, grass-wrapped bundle.
