This past Easter Sunday I wanted to fast forward my 3-month old’s future. I wanted her to be able to walk, to look for things, to do crafts with me! All day, I was bombarded with pictures on Facebook of families dyeing eggs and was even sent a video of my ecstatic niece doing her first Easter Egg Hunt. I can’t wait! I want to do that stuff now!
Maybe a little selfishly, but I can’t wait to do the things I never did. As a child of immigrant parents, my sister and I missed out on typical American holiday traditions. We did celebrate Easter, but it quite simply included church in a pastel colored dress, an Easter basket and a ham lunch/dinner.
Then I realized there’s a bunch of stuff I have yet to experience and can’t wait to do with my child. Here’s my list:
- Dye Easter Eggs
- Do an Easter Egg Hunt
- Go on a Hay Ride
- Go Apple/fruit picking (probably with a hay ride)
- Carve a pumpkin
Of course, we can’t wait to start our own family traditions as well. Not sure what they are yet, but will look forward to creating them and sharing them.
