Last Night while little brother was in the shower – big brother put all the pieces together and figure out that there is no Easter Bunny (shhh – its all Mom & Dad.) Daddy-Man quickly swooped in and in a hushed tone explained why we had told him the Easter Bunny was real – the magic of the story makes it more fun for little ones. AK was spot on about not breaking the news to Z-Man.
I go back to decorating the table for Easter Dinner – Fab!Hubby goes back to dishes – and AK goes back to his ice-cream.
We watch as the gears turn in his brain – and as is AK’s way he talks through his though process… the Tooth Fairy goes out the window… quickly followed by the most jolly of big men – Santa. There it is… no Santa.
I always wondering how this scene would play out… never in a million years did I expect the following…
AK, “Sooo… all that stuff… you spent your money on.”
Daddy-Man, “Yes, we did all tha… well, yes, yes,we did.”
AK, “OH! THANK YOU, wow, Thank You!”
… all I can say is wow! I am so blessed… this kid is just amazing and I am so grateful that I get to be his mom.
