    Default Update on Easter basket

    I truly appreciate all the comments about my Easter

    basket conundrum. What I realized is that there is no

    ONE perfect answer. It really is up to me. I think

    what bothered me the most was that I had already

    decided to skip the Easter basket, and felt "peer

    pressure" to do it. I'm 37 years old...you would think

    I would be past peer pressure by this point in my

    life! I guess we can all be susceptible to that,

    especially when it is someone whose opinion we value.



    I decided to bring back everything but the book.

    Reading is her absolute favorite, so I know she will

    love the book. She already owns a toothbrush and

    bubbles, so those were unecessary. I already own

    several baskets that would be the right size for her

    to put stuff in and carry around, so I can just let

    her play with those.



    I did, however, have a fun idea. I really love summer

    and the beach, so I am going to start a new tradition

    with my daughter... a "Summer Basket". On Memorial Day

    I'll fill a sand bucket, beach bag, or something like

    that with the essentials she'll need to enjoy the

    summer. I can put in sunglasses, a hat, a swimsuit in

    her new size, a couple cheap beach toys from the

    dollar store, and a pair of shorts and t-shirt for the

    first really warm day. I will have alot of fun putting

    that basket together, and celebrating the arrival of

    summer with her. Best of all, they are things she

    needs anyway, so no guilt about spending the money.

    The clothes can be from a thrift shop - she won't know

    the difference at this age.



    Thanks again for the input.
