Easter Q~nA~ please

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Ok my kids are 6,9,11 almost. the 9,11 told me they don't believe in the Easter bunny Santa and tooth fairy all of that and I told them it was a spirit and it makes kids happy and they pass it to there kids. I also said don't tell your brother or I will hang ya out back LOL.

Ok my thing is when my son lost his 2 teeth week ago I took him to a movie since he did not believe in the tooth fairy well what do I do about Easter. I mean I believe in it and am 31 I know it isn't real but it is the smile it put on our face. I know Xmas this year wasn't good because they told me they did not believe in Santa I mean I could tell the change in them

DO I get my little man a basket and the others something else. I don't want them to destroy it for there little brother.

Also if Abbygayle should arrive what do I do there she will be a newborn.

I think you should just celebrate it as if they do believe in Easter

Its just as much for you as it is for them, and they should appreciate anything they get considering how naughty they have been recently

Hope Abby stays just where she is for the moment and waits till Easter is over

Just give him a chocolate bunny and tell him if he wants more then he needs to believe in the Easter bunny again.

My MIL still gives my husband (and me now) Easter baskets and we obviously don't believe in the Easter bunny anymore. I think it's nice though.

If my children are home, they are 29 and 27, the Easter Bunny still comes and sees them. And the Easter Bunny still brings my husband a basket too.

We still got visits from the Easter Bunny, and still do I don't think it matters what age they are, they would still enjoy getting a surprise basket of goodies!

We still get Easter baskets every year from my parents, and I give one to DH every year. I'd give them baskets. If they question it, just tell them that you don't want to spoil it for their youngest brother.

Yep, and I am always very sneaky about it too, I even make little notes from the Easter Bunny.

My kids 10 and 13 still enjoy it even though they don't believe anymore. They love finding the jelly bean filled eggs and a couple of little presents hiding around the house, besides the easter basket. My younger son has to get braces and nice mommy that I am, I scheduled it for after Easter so he could have one more wild junk fest before his candy gets restricted for 2 years. (glad its not me )

Mine to too, and my husband got mad because Santa brought him a present, we had already exchanged ours. But when he got mad, I told him Santa had brought me one too, I bought me something that I wanted.

I never get a basket
post #18 of 22
My kids are 6,9,13 and 16.I still get ALL of them a basket, even though only the 6 year old believes.
I would get Abby a stuffed animal or an outfit.
What about getting the kids some sand toys or a DVD? I will sometimes get mine that instead of a stuffed animal.

Well... one Easter Sunday long ago, I woke up hearing a lot of birds making a fuss outside my window. I'd been taught in Girl Scouts that birds do that to warn each other of danger -- so I went to my window to see what the birds were afraid of.

And there was a great big brown-and-white bunny in the back yard.

So no matter what anybody tells you... YES, Gemlady, there IS an Easter Bunny!

If you are religious you can tell them the Easter stories and say that is why we celebrate the greatest Christian festival or Jewish Passover. If not, you can just say that since time immemorial people have given each other eggs at Easter to celebrate the rebirth of the year and the coming of Spring. Either way, you get to have a holiday weekend and they should be satisfied.
