If you celebrate easter.....

I was thinking today that my baby will be just a week old when its easter. No way am I heading to town for easter basket goodies. And my DH is clueless at this sort of thing. So now I have to make sure I have the basket goodies and dye and eggs BEFORE I go to the hospital. Ugh!!
But just thinking others are going to be I have the same spot as me. And I thought maybe you might want a heads up!
Just add it your ever growing list of too do 's. Lol

Yes, good reminder! I am thinking that if I go overdue I may very well still be in the hospital or freshly out of the hospital come Easter. I am thinking that since my oldest two know all about the "Easter Bunny" and my youngest is too young to know and won't realize when Easter really is, I may do it a week early this year. Or I may do a week later, whichever will work best. Dh can take the girls to church on the actual day but I am sure they can understand not celebrating the Easter Bunny on the actual date, if need be.

Yes I think at the end of March I might make sure to buy all of the Easter goodies just in case I do go early. I think it is very unlikely but you never know.

My husband is a great shopper though so we should be okay no matter what.

I probably will handle getting baskets together soon after my husband gets home and I can get away. I'll be almost 38 weeks at Easter so I'm not sure if I really have anything to worry about then or not. This baby feels like she'll be later.

I had to laugh at Frutess too. My DH's family always buys lottery tickets to go with little gifts like that.

I'll probably get Easter goodies in the next 3 weeks. But I'm sure I'll still be pregnant by then. Which gives me an excuse to eat the Easter goodies!

good thinking! I better add it to my calendar to do early too! Though all but my 1 year old are much older so they likely wouldn't care if we did it late either. We don't have any hide and hunt traditions or anything. We just eat them.

@mrs_kevin..
LOL
Do we really ever need a reason to eat goodies!
Except when you have gestational diabetes. Ugh
