Score 1 For Me
March 24, 2008
Every year for Easter, each of J’s 3 sisters give my children an Easter basket filled with goodies, including a stuffed bunny. That’s 6 stuffed bunnies that come home with me every year. My kids are boys. They rarely play with stuffed animals, and NEVER play with bunnies. Also, they practically have a Toys R Us store in their room, and do not need any more toys, espically ones they aren’t remotely interested in playing with. Unbeknownst to them, those bunnies move to a new home (Goodwill) every year before the last day of spring.
Therefore, earlier this year I made a speech to the collective sis-in-laws, explaining that the stuffed bunnies are multiplying like, well……. rabbits, and asked them to end this tradition, thus saving them money, and me trips to Goodwill.
I am proud to report that we exited the festivities yesterday stuffed bunny free.
Now if I could only get them to put the kid’s booty in reusable gift bags rather than baskets, because after each kid emerging with 3 extra baskets/buckets every year, Easter baskets are multiplying like……….. rabbits.
