My Easter was horrible, how about yours?

My Easter was horrible this year! How was yours? It started out to be looking like it was going to be a great weekend for all of us. We had family and friends coming for the weekend to spend Easter together, had a great Easter Dinner planned for Sunday night, and Rodney and myself even had planned some time for just us while we could take advantage of some babysitting. Everything was looking great until Saturday afternoon.

Saturday we spent most of the day hanging around the house, playing with the girls making an Easter Bunny cookie house and shopping as well. We were really looking forward to Sunday, heading to Detroit to go see some Indy wrestling and go support my friend Elijah (Burke) since it’s been a while since I’ve seen him, especially in the ring. It was supposed to be myself, my husband and my best friend heading to Detroit Sunday afternoon around 1:00pm. Apparently, that wasn’t going to happen…. My father was under the impression that they were leaving Sunday afternoon, not Monday like it was originally planned. No one communicated to him that the plan was for them to leave on Monday and not Sunday like normal. It was a holiday on Monday for my mother and my best friend who didn’t have to be at work until Tuesday.

What a disappointment. I was so upset not only would I not get to see Elijah, but that guy deserves and needs all the support he can get when it comes to wrestling and getting back into that ring, with WWE out of the picture for him, I need to show him all the support he could get, but unfortunately that wasn’t going to happen now.

I wasn’t really in the mood to cook for anyone now, so we decided to get Rodney to pick up dinner on the way home for everyone. We couldn’t fully decide on what to get, but eventually we decided on Red Robin. Rodney was going to pick it all up that was until I told him the bad news about Sunday. He was so upset, and decided it would probably be better for us to all go out for dinner now, because he didn’t want to be in the house with all this tension right now, he was pretty upset.

We head to Red Robin, which is the girls favorite restaurant wait to be seated and order up our food. I splurged all weekend with stuff I normally wouldn’t eat, I feel horrible today because of it and have already been drinking slimfast, water and working out all morning. Things were going great, everyone was loving their food, and then the horror happened. Lyric threw a HUGE tantrum because she didn’t want to sit down on her seat. I gave her a few options to stop crying, to come talk to me, and the tantrum wouldn’t stop. Talk about embarrassing! She then had the last option to get over to me and stop crying before I counted to 5 or she would be going back to the car until everyone was finished and ready to go.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5…. No Lyric. Rodney picked her up, and out we went to the car with her kicking and screaming at the top of her lungs, through the restaurant and out to the parking lot, all the way to the car. So embarrassing!!! But I didn’t want her to continue with this mess while people were staring at us. Rodney went back to the restaurant and Lyric and I sat in the car. Trying to get her to calm down but it wouldn’t stop. The kicking, the screaming, the yelling, finally when everyone got back and was done in the restaurant she was still going on. Rodney was so pissed off that he told her if she didn’t stop, Easter would be canceled for her. No candy, no chocolate, no Easter egg hunt….

I’m sure by now you can see where this is going. Easter Sunday was filled with candy and chocolate for Aria, but nothing for Lyric. Nothing but staring out the window watching her sister get all of the eggs herself. The Easter bunny did leave Lyric one thing though, a nice letter explaining why she wasn’t able to participate in the hunt, and that if she behaved maybe in a few weeks she could have another hunt with the extra candy and eggs he left for mommy and daddy.

We’ll see how this goes, I’m sick of the tantrums, but so far, this extreme measure of having her miss out on all the Easter fun has helped and she’s been listening and been an angel since yesterday morning. She understands exactly why she didn’t get to participate, and what she has to do before she can.

The last bit of bad Easter, was last night. Apparently Aria had been sneaking chocolate all day long without anyone knowing the wiser. We were up half the night with one sick, pukey child. I can’t believe the amount of chocolate this child threw up. Today, she’s great though. Chocolate has been hid, and no more of that will be going on today.

The joys of parenthood! Gotta love it!
