What's On This Weekend *Easter Edition!*: Mar 30-Apr 1
While most parents probably enjoy fairly uneventful Easters filled with nibbles of chocolates and sweets, family gatherings and backyard egg hunts, we tend to do things like have babies or rush to the emergency room because someone isn't breathing. In addition to the sugar buzz, Easter comes with a whopping range of emotions for yours truly.
But, speaking of whoppers, I bought a giant bag of those chocolate eggs because they're so pretty and I kidded myself into thinking I wouldn't eat them all. #sorrynotsorry Do you have a favorite Easter candy that you stash away from the kids?
