3.4.10

Easter.

2006 and Deacon is 3. He is holding a bucket of sugar, standing in a T-Shirt and underwear and he somewhat glares at me. This is not the reaction I had expected. "Mom, tell me the truth. Is the Easter Bunny Real?"
!!!!
What? This can not be happening! He's 3! My mind draws a blank. He's too young for this! What do I say? "Well, sweetie...what do you think?"
"No. I don't think he is real."
"Well- ummm it's fun to pretend isn't it." Then we went into a discussion about why we celebrate Easter. Just when I thought he was ok with it all he replies. "You mean after all these years, you've lied to me?!" (keep in mind he's THREE!)
WOW. How do you not smile at that? really?! So we talked a little longer till we were both ok with things. My little man. You are six now. And you wanted to help set up Easter for Aubs in the morning. I love you.
Happy Easter to my little ones.

Sad he doesn't believe in the Easter bunny but at least you have a great helper and he can enjoy it that way! Love the pics and those eggs are amazing!

Deacon's heart cannot get any bigger- he is the sweetest boy! Even though he doesn't believe anymore, he is so cute to want to lend a hand for his sister. xo
