Okay, that went nowhere. I didn't know where to start. Let me try again.
Tomorrow is Easter.
When I was little, my parents ALWAYS had such fun things for us from the Easter Bunny! Sometimes we got "big" things, like bikes. Other times, we got novel things, like beanbag chairs, and some years we got things that lasted forever like darling desk lamps (that we still have...well, I still have mine anyway!) Either way, the things we got were always bright, fun, sort of classic and timeless in a way. The FEELING behind it was spectacular!
This year, I had ideas of things to get Taiger! But nothing seemed to work out with the family situation. Where we are living, who is living here, etc. all play in to what Taiger could get for Easter. In the end, my sweet Mom bought him things that matched what the other kids were getting, and that is pretty much all he is getting.
I DIDN'T EVEN GET HIM PEEPS!
I am not kidding. NO PEEPS!
Only, I didn't.
But it FEELS like I did.
I feel like something is missing. Something really special.
We have had a good week leading up to Easter, learning about Jesus Christ, as that is why WE celebrate Easter. So, I know that really he has what he needs for Easter...a knowledge of what Easter is about, and why we celebrate Easter.
But there STILL seems to be something missing. Something special. A FEELING, maybe.
So, tonight I feel like a bad Mom.
