Jesus and the Easter Bunny

Me: We need to get ready for our party on Sunday.

The Toddler: Party my house?

Me: Yes, we’re having a party at our house with our friends for Easter.

The Toddler: Yay! Jesus!

Me: (Thrilled that my toddler is making this connection between Jesus and Easter. Must be the deeply spiritual home he’s being raised in.) Yes! Easter is all about Jesus being alive!

The Toddler: Yes. Jesus. Alive. Church. CANDY! Easter bunny come my church bring CANDY!

Me: The Easter bunny is coming to church?

The Toddler: Yes. Bringing candy after lunch. Jesus comes too.

Allrighty then. Nothing like lunch with Jesus and the Easter Bunny. I can hardly wait.

Too funny! But at least he did get that Jesus was part of it. That's something, right?

Just today in the car my preschooler was talking about how she's actually SEEN the Easter bunny. Thankfully when I asked her "where?" she didn't say "church".

Hey Llama Momma,
I'm a fellow MOPS Publicity Leader and was looking for a quick, cute Easter funny (which is harder than you think!) and this was perfect. Would you mind if I use it in my newsletter? If so, could you give me your 'real' name so I can give proper credit? Thanks, Jen

That is precious! I'm sure in a toddler's eyes that's BIG stuff...well, come to think of it lunch with Jesus would be HUGE even to an adult! I can take or leave the Easter Bunny.
