Happy Easter!

So, I'm posting on my blog today because the testing website is down and I can't take the test. I'm doing the equavalent of pacing on the internet, hitting the refresh button until my eyes cross. Panic has set in. A sinking feeling of "I'll never finish this." With head in hands, I tell myself to have faith. Maybe it is just for today. Maybe God thought I deserved a break from the insanity that is that test. Maybe the website is just down for today, this hour, minute. I'm obsessing, clearly it's not pretty.

I have some Easter plans, that do not involve cursing technology. My parents are coming to visit, possibly my sister too. I'm excited to see them, I know they want to see J. I'm nervous though because he is at the stage where strangers are not so good. But J is too good natured and easy going to let a little strange anxiety stop him from having a good time so I'm sure it will be fine.

I got some Willy Wonka golden easter eggs, but I don't know what to fill them with. I gave J a jelly bean, and that was a big mistake. It was like watching Hammy from Over the Hedge drink a soda, hyperactive x 100. He couldn't sleep that night either, stayed awake all night talking (to whom we don't know). Then I let him have a little of the iicing from easter cookies. Another mistake, same thing happened. So, candy bad. Small toys are out, choking hazard. So what to fill the eggs with? Fruit?

Happy Easter weekend to everyone! Be safe.

Maybe put stickers in the eggs? My boys have always loved stickers. That might work if he doesn't put them in his mouth. Or there is sugar free candy but finding the right kind that fits in an egg may be hard. But don't worry too much about it. My 4 year old loves playing with just the eggs anyways! Good luck on the test.

Fill them with cheerios! And if he spills them, who cares, Sammy can eat them up. Enjoy and take lots of pictures!
