Which reminds me, I have a story to tell about one of the items above. Might save that for a rainy day.
If you think one of these has your name on it, keep an eye out for some MoederMail this week!
This is not specifically a holiday tradition, but as it is to do with eggs, it seems relevant!
I grew up in a tiny household, just me and my mum. She was disabled for most of my childhood, after a car accident, so sometimes things were stretched: money, energy, time, food. But whenever she made me a boiled egg for breakfast, she would take a biro and draw a beautiful happy silly cartoony face on the egg, complete with hair on top. She never failed to draw that face, and I wouldn't have wanted to eat an egg without it. It was a nice reminder that mum was still Mum, still taking care of me and taking the time to do something frivolous, just to make me smile.
I now draw a face on my daughter's boiled egg every time (and my own!). It doesn't mean much more to her than a little giggle, but it gives me that same sense of security and happiness to do it for her as it did to receive a boiled egghead when I was little.
Now I come to think about it, it's a bit gross to give personality to something you're about to chop the top off, but I'm still going to keep doing it! :D
My fondest memory of Easter was eating my chocolate in bed next to my Dad <3
But this year I also started a new tradition. Planting Magic Jelly Beans in the garden. This morning my son found lolly pops growing where we planted them yesterday! He was also super excited about the chocolate flavoured paw prints the Easter Bunny left just near the door :) Magical!
