How to Win at an Easter Egg Hunt

Part of Perfect Moment Mondays…

Had it been me that was asked to pose for this photo at age three, I would’ve run screaming the other way. But, the cross-eyed, pinched-face bunny with the psychedelic vest had become Reagan’s best friend on this day. Just look at all the loot he left for her to find!

Being the oldest in her group at preschool gave Reagan a decided advantage on the playing field. She scooped up the colored plastic eggs and goody bags spilled across the lawn with speed and ease.

So much speed, that before long, her bucket was overflowing and I made her stop to be fair to the littler kids and the older ones who had yet to take their turn.

Then Reagan did something else I’m sure I would never have done had it been me at age three. She immediately began handing out her goodies to all her friends, naming each of them as she pulled a treat out of her bucket. My heart swelled with pride. And the rest of me sighed with relief that there would be just a little less candy in the house to cause other parts of me to swell. Everybody wins!

    I love that her instinct was to share.

    And that you’ll maintain your girlish figure!

A half-hatched role-reversal takes flight on a wing and a prayer.

Life is a misadventure mixed with mayhem.
