Today is Easter Sunday and a day to celebrate. Its only the second day of the year that shops are closed and families actually have the time to spend together without thinking that they could be somewhere else. It also obviously means that in the run up to Easter Sunday, everyone panic buys food because the shops are closed for one whole day.
As a child I loved Easter and I remember having chocolate eggs in the fridge till at least June but as a parent now, I inwardly groan at the mere sight of the ever increasing chocolate egg mountain.
Dont get me wrong, I love that we have so many generous friends and family who want to buy for our children at Easter time but I am something of a mean mommy and I have to admit to "sharing" the childrens chocolate. I am thinking of the childrens teeth (obviously) when I should actually be thinking of my own waistime (clearly).
So my challenge for next Easter is to find alternatives to chocolate for Easter gifts .... or should I simply just learn some self control??
