The Easter Bunny Wears Converse

If you were in charge of Easter photos, and the Easter Bunny was wearing Converse sneakers, wouldn't you feel compelled to document that?  Well, my husband didn't.  I shall punish him by withholding myself physically and emotionally.  He'll be baffled as to why and I won't cite a reason.   I like the utter confusion and insecurity this will cause.

We only have photos with the Easter Bunny from his knees up, all of which I am in and I have no desire to post pictures of myself quite yet. I might have made an exception if aforementioned sneakers were in the photo...  Even my 17-month-olds knew something was amiss. LuLu kept pointing to his sneaker and then her sneakers as if to say, "Easter Bunnies don't wear shoes, dumb ass."

Footwear issues aside, the girls LOVED the Easter Bunny.  We stalked him around the town square where LuLu would occasionally break free and hang on his furry leg.  At one point the Easter Bunny's friend came up, handed him car keys and told him he better move the car because he might get a parking ticket.  So here in Chicago we had a driving, shoe-wearing bunny with parking issues.  Please note the girls wore pastel this year.


  1. Were they at least pastel converse?

  2. That Easter Bunny image cracks me up. We were trying to explain to my 5-year-old that the Easter Bunny wasn't scary, that he was in fact just a guy in a suit. And I told him that when I was in high school, I was once Frosty the Snowman at the grocery store. He found this fascinating and wanted to know whether my arms were sticks or snow. I think they were snow, though he was quick to point out that sticks wouldn't have been that hard. The only thing I really remember is that the costume was swelteringly hot in January, so I kept ducking into aisles where I didn't think I was likely to run into any kids so I could take my head off. I bet that would have traumatized some kids. I did not, however, have any parking worries, as I was in the suburbs.

    The girls look beautiful. And yes, I also would have insisted on photographing the sneakers.

  3. You can't drive in big furry feet, silly!
