The Easter That Almost Didn’t Happen

I’ve been feeling out of sort lately. I have a lot on my mind with work or lack of it. As much as I tried to get myself out of the rot it just wasn’t happening. Come Easter Morning, my 6 year old with her little sister in toe ran around the house looking for Easter eggs – something they’ve done every year ever since they can remember but this year would be different. There were no Easter egg, the bunny didn’t visit our house because Mommy forgot.

I guess being consumed with my day to day I forgot to do my motherly duty – I dropped the ball on this. The girls were good about it though, when they didn’t find anything they played it off and went about their day. Some hours later, I heard my husband tell them to go try searching again maybe this time their hunt will be successful. He was right, shortly after, I heard the girls scream as they spot their 1st egg then it was an healthy combination of laughing and screaming and frustration till they found all 24 hidden gems. I even joined in on the hunt. While they were not looking, I whispered to my husband – “Thanks for Easter”.

The last few months in my house has been a series of mommy oops moment – I’m not sure why but I keep dropping the ball – not sure exactly what’s going on but I’m working on figuring it out. I’m glad I have a wonderful husband that knows when to pick up the slack so the kids doesn’t miss a thing. Without me saying a word he knew what to do. He snuck out without the kids and i knowing, got some Easter goodies and hid them around the house.  He understood that sometimes, as much as I would love to, I can’t be everything to everyone.

Have you ever had any “oops mommy” moment?  How did you handle it? What do you do now to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself. It happens to the best of us. If my kids kept a tab of all my oops moment we will be super rich by now.
