this weekend: thrift store treasures
Easter is in full effect at my favorite thrift store right now and the kids and I picked up these treasures yesterday. I managed to sneak a few things into the cart for Easter baskets too. With Easter in particular it feels a bit silly to me to keep up the ruse but the kids are always so delighted to find their baskets and hunt for eggs. My five year old is very analytical and I know he kind of knows the score but he wants to believe. Yesterday he asked me if the Easter Rabbit eats human food. He speculated that because he behaves like a human (putting together Easter baskets and hiding them for children) he probably eats food like a human does too. So pretty much he was asking me if the Easter Rabbit was really a human right? My answer to these types of questions about implausible holiday characters is usually just "Hmmmm, I don't know kiddo." which is good enough because he doesn't really want to know the answer anyway.
