Easter AKA what was I thinking?!?!

Drew and I had this brilliant idea a couple of weeks ago; why don't we host Easter at our house this year instead of schlepping between both our parents' houses? It would make nap time a bajillion times easier and still allow us to see both families. Win-win, right?


Not even close. This is a lose, lose, lose. Forget about the awkwardness that comes with having both families here. Let's talk about the fact that we're going to be making dinner for 14 people (how did it become 14?!?). Let's talk about the fact that it means actually cleaning the entire house, because of course people are going to be all over the place. Let's talk about the fact that hosting means we can't just up and leave when we're wiped out and ready to go. Oh yeah, then there's the clean up AFTER, I'm sure that will be fun.

Next time Drew and I claim to have a good idea, smack us. Hard. 

Fynn better love it, because making her day is the only way all of this will be worth it. 


  1. Ah, I made that same mistake once, but it was Thanksgiving and I was hugely pregnant with my first daughter. I hope your day goes well!

  2. Oh yes, I know about these. We made this mistake once a few years ago - we had a party and invited both families. It was a disaster. Never again.
