I need to let all of my expectations go on days like these. Why? Because nothing I expected really happened. We walked into Build A Bear: I pointed out the rabbit and he saw the dog. I picked it up, made sure that's what he spotted, and yes he picked the dog. Tried one more time pointing out the bunny...nope dog! Forget the Easter Bunny theme and get the dog is what his eyes told me!
We walked to the other end of the mall and there he was, the famous Easter Bunny. We saw the bunny, waved at the bunny, and then walked on the set to take the photo...nope. "Mommy" pleaded my little boy standing in front of me, hands reaching for me, and looking up with fearful blue eyes. I picked him up and he began clinging to me. So tight in fact that I could let go of him and he didn't move an inch. Ava was doing the very same thing. Pictures didn't happen, at least not pictures with the bunny. I'm ok with that because $23 for two 5x7s was still in my pocket and we have one of my favorite memories to date!
We enjoyed a yummy lunch with family and friends and made it home for naptime! Did your little one like the Easter Bunny this year?
