I intensely dislike coloring Easter eggs. Ok
, there I’ve said it. May a chocolate-bunny shaped bolt of lightening strike me down! If there is a Grinch for Easter eggs..I am IT. I am not quite sure what about it I dislike so much. But I do know that the last 4 years of egg coloring has been filled with stains, messes, and lots of tears. The mortality rate on our eggs is high. We’re lucky if 50% make it to the dying bowl unscathed. I wish I knew of a magical way to make eggs color, to make them NOT crack and a way to make those $$##@ stickers that come in the
box STICK. All of this would eliminate mucho biotchin
from my 6 year old. This year we only did 6 eggs. I was hoping that if I kept the quantity
down, it would not prolong the agony any longer than needed. I am happy to say it went smoother than previous years. Did you know that a crack/dent in the side of a shell makes a cool spiderweb pattern when dyed? And we remembered to write on the eggs with the wax crayon BEFORE we dunked them this year (the egg pictured above is my masterpiece. And in case you were wondering it say “AARRRGGHH
!!! on the other side). But we got ‘er done and Jake went to school today with green and blue fingers. Secretly I was relieved that the demon-egg-dyin
process was DONE until another year…until I got home last night and was met by the pouty
, pucked face of our 6 year-old.
“, he whined “Daddy threw out our Easter eggs!”.
Huh? (panic) “WHY?”
“Cuz they were starting to stink”, replies Daddy (not even looking up from his newspaper). “You guys shoulda put them in the fridge”.
“MMMOOMMMM“, warbles a frustrated little voice. “Can we make more?”
*sigh* So guess what I am doing today? At least all the Easter stuff will be at least 50% off. And the little $$@@##!! stickers in the box? I am hoping the fact they are half price make them magically more sticky. Otherwise, there’s always Elmer’s Glue!
