Today was supposed to be better! And it was… mostly. Ben took the girls out this morning and I had a great visit with my good friend Erin and her sweet little boy. Plus, they brought delicious spanakopita and hummus. What a nice treat! And the girls came back with just enough time to have a quick play date with JJ.
The weather was kind of stinky today but NO rain so we headed out to the much anticipated egg hunt. The kids ran around, ate cookies had a great time and Chase found the golden egg! She was thrilled and, oh wait, SCANDAL when she proudly announced that her dad told her where to find it! Isn’t that great? Yup. It was great. Ohmygod. My first thought? Can I die now? I kept asking her, did daddy tell you that? Yes. No, wait. I meant did DADDY tell you that? Yes. No, wait. Maybe you didn’t hear me. Did daddy TELL you that? Yes. Ohmygod. All I can do is look over hopelessly at Ben pushing Avery on the swings. Ha, hahaha, ha. Still smiling. I’m that parent. Shoot me, please. Clearly, she didn’t feel like she cheated. She was in a state of complete bliss over her find.
So in the end what I learned is that he gave her a “hint.” Follow the big kids (because the big kids probably know where it is). Me? I would have said no, I cannot tell you where it is but I wasn’t privy to the discussion. Is that cheating? I don’t know but can I lie down in a dark room with a cool compress over my eyes now? Sweet cheebus. Honestly.
