Why 2 years 4 months, and 13 days May Be Too Young To Dye Easter Eggs
It started out innocently enough, with me deciding that, this year, Joseph was going to be allowed to dye Easter Eggs.
Brian opted out and was put on camera duty, so it was a one-woman-egg-dying show.
(Note to self: Opening your eyes really wide doesn't make you look less tired. It just makes you look crazy.)
Now, when I cook, Joseph always helps me crack the RAW eggs into the bowl. So, he decided that these eggs needed to be cracked too!
(cracking on the side of the bowl...)
I tried to quickly show him how we GENTLY placed the eggs into the bowls of dye...as he proceeded to crack every single one except for the one that I had. After he was done cracking them, he placed them gently in the bowl to be dyed.
Don't I look like I am in physical pain? That is because the dye went all over the floor, onto Joseph's booster seat (which stains easily), onto our table (which stains easily) and onto his only pair of sweatpants that fit him right now.
But, I think that I recovered quite nicely.
So, in the end, Joseph had a lot of fun
And, as for me, I had a slightly stained table, booster seat, sweatpants, and a sticky floor.
But, it was WAAAY more memorable than if everything had gone as planned!
Happy Easter from Joseph:
