When I was a kid growing up in the ’80s and ’90s, my Easter basket was always filled with lots and lots of candy. We had jelly beans, chocolate eggs, Reese’s peanut butter eggs, Cadbury eggs, and of course a big chocolate bunny that usually took us about a month to eat. Occasionally we would get a little gift in the basket that wasn’t candy, but most years it was all about the sugar.

I never planned on going past 12 months, so as she gets older I’m starting to do more bottles. Even though I’m looking forward to getting my body completely back to myself, I’m sad to let it go. It just reminds me that the baby stage goes by so fast and you really need to take it all in while you can.

This time sharing my daily schedule as a stay-at-home-mom with a baby and a PreK kid. Read more
