My son is 10 months old. He has no idea of Easter. I got him an outfit to wear to church and for his birthday photos (same outfit).
I have had people ask me if he will get a chocolate bunny????!!!! Whatever for? We will go to church and he will enjoy dinner with the family and play a lot, but no basket this year.
He won’t get it at all.
If you don’t think your child will comphrehend or know that it is all about even if you explain, don’t fret over it. Take it back and spend the $$$$ where it will do more good for her.

somewhere I can admit to these feelings, it would be here…
Today I went to Target with a friend to help her choose items for
Easter baskets. I told her I wasn’t planning to get my
daughter (18 months old) an Easter basket. She is too young to know
she’s missing anything, and besides she will get one at her Daddy’s
But my friend still thought I should get her a basket, that
it would be fun. This friend has alot more money than I do…her
family is planning a trip to the Caribbean, where they will be
sharing a $6,000/week villa by the ocean with another family. She
understands that I am in a very different position, but…
I wound up spending $33, to get:
– plush ducky “basket”
– plastic grass
– fun toothbrush
– a book
– watering can (for the tub and the beach)
My daughter will love all of these things, and it is so hard to
resist things that you know your child will enjoy. i am normally so
frugal, part of me thinks i should keep the stuff and be ok with it.
otherwise, i should
return the stuff and be ok with not giving it to
her. i don’t really feel great about either one.
does anyone else
beat themselves up with feelings of guilt when buying something,
especially for your kids? what if it’s a rare treat? no bills will
go unpaid due to this expenditure.
