Scene: My house. My parents stopped in for a quick visit. The boys are talking with their Gramma about upcoming Easter events.
Grant: “…And will we do an Easter egg hunt at your house?”
Gramma: “Yes! Of course! And what do you boys want the Easter Bunny to bring you for Easter?”
Me: “Mom! The Easter Bunny is not like Santa Claus! He does NOT bring gifts, he brings candy and eggs.” (Said while shooting her the don’t-you-dare-set-up-Easter-to-be-another-gift-giving-extravaganza-where-these-little-turkeys-get-spoiled-rotten look.)
Devin shushes me: “Mom, don’t curb Gramma’s enthusiasm.”
Is that what we’re calling Over-Zealous Grandparents these days…? Enthusiastic?
Please visit the new blog that Mandi from Vintage Revivals and I started.
That picture up there scares me. Does it scare you??
Off to vote!
Oh I so agree! I know a grandmom who gives her grands “presents” for every freakin holiday! And I mean them all…it’s crazy. I will give my grands a bunny or peeps for Easter, a cookie for Valentines day and a extra handful of candy for Halloween but that’s it…other than Christmas or their Bdays!
MiMi I was thinking the same thing with the pictures….a little creepy…LOL
Angie @ Thrifty Like Me says
This made me laugh cause I know exactly how you feel! Seems like every holiday is turning into “more stuff”.

Yeah like our kids aren’t spoiled enough right?! That picture is kind of creepy.
By the way I love the new blog you started. Funny stuff!
I voted as well. I really hope yours was my favorite!
That poor little girl. . . it reminds me of a pic of one of my daughters sitting on Santas knee.
Check out my blog post on the easter eggs I made from your post earlier. Thanks so much for the idea. . . LOVE my new eggs.
You should tell your mom that my daughter discovered the Easter Bunny is a fraud.
It’s a guy in a costume.
Date Girl says
holy hell that is one hilarious picture. I cracked up so hard. That poor little babe is terrified of that creepy bunny. In her defense I’d be scared too!!
Oh man am I in for it. My mother in law gives us little gifts all the time. I cringe to think of what she’ll do for our future child. She’s going to spoil it ROTTEN!
The Easter Bunny doesn’t bring gifts? Oops!
That poor child is so going to need therapy in a few more years!
Does this mean that I have to return the gifts I’ve purchased for myself on behalf of my husband? Grrr…killjoy.
Ummm our Easter Mommy brings gifts and eggs and candy. But small gifts like play makeup or hair stuff or things to color etc.
hahaha…this was great! Thanks for sharing this little momment and making me laugh right out loud 🙂
It’s disturbing. We have the same thing going on around here. I heard my mom mentioning buying Isaiah a DS game (amongst other things) for “Easter”…REALLY??? What happened to the days of Easter baskets being filled with candy and eggs?
That pic cracks me up.
Hope you’re having a great week so far!♥
Devin is cracking me up. Boy do you have a house full of smart asses or what! LOL.
Ok so that picture… how scary is that. That poor little girl. I did laugh a little though… that makes me sound kind of mean huh.
I’m heading over to vote RIGHT NOW!
baha-love those photos! I don’t have kids yet, but my sister had to put a gift limit on my mom for Christmas!
AAAHHH! The Crazy Easter Bunny!
