I am so tired of holidays. I mean, didn't we just finish Christmas, and New Year's? I am ready to be done. But no, here comes Easter. And with it, comes the pressure of Easter baskets, eggs and lots of candy. Well, this year I decided that the obligatory stuffed animal for Easter needs to be twisted. So I am thinking of getting these cute little things for my kids. Look at the eyes on this cuddly E. Coli. Doesn't he beg to be loved?
They even have The Pox and Syphillis, but those are better left for adults.
If you like these, order them from Giant Microbes.
I suppose chocolate is a no brainer. As a kid, I would eat the bottom from my rabbit first, because I felt bad for eating his ears. Fast forward a few years and now I eat the cake before the frosting. I guess I started early.
Of course, no Easter basket is complete without Peeps I personally cannot stand them, and think this is a better use for them. There's nothing like traumatizing your kids by blowing up cute little marshmallow animals. We'll call it homeschool! We'll call it science!
I think my absolute favorite Easter present from my parents one year was a delicate etched silver cross, on a box chain. I still have it in my jewelry box. I think I was about my daughter's age when I received it.
So, your turn. What is the best Easter present you remember?
And Peeps? Or no Peeps?
After this post, I feel like I have to go and wash my hands!
