The other morning, my mom called and asked if she could come over and spend the morning with Coleman. In addition to her regular gifts of time and play that she so freely gives to Cole, on this morning she also brought my boy a present for Easter.
She came in the house to find Coleman giddy with excitement at the sight of his friend (Cole gets that way around his Grandmas). Once at the house, Kolette took off, not wanting to miss an opportunity to get in her morning run
After kisses and a proper hello (which usually means giggles and hugs), she pulled out the gift. I was sure that it was going to be some sort of candy treat or yogurt covered pretzel that little Cole loves so much. But when the package was opened, much to my surprise it was not chocolate, or even a toy, but a set of blue bunny ears attached to a plastic headband. As we sat there laughing at the present Grandma had found for her grandson, little did we know that the laughter had just begun.
Mom put the ears on Coleman, sure that he would pull them off the first chance he got. But, we learned something about Coleman that morning—the kid loves him a quality set o’ bunny ears!
He walked around the house looking at us while we laughed, wondering what was so stinkin’ funny. He’d look at us as if to say, “I’m wearin’ my ears…get over it.”
Just then, Ko got home from her run. By her laughter, I think it’s safe to say the last thing she expected to see welcoming her at the door, was Cole wearing a set of blue bunny ears.
He kept them with him until his nap, and when he woke up they went right back on. Now, some out there that believe the Easter Bunny to be a figment of peoples imagination, or the product of some tall tale.
To them I say, the Easter Bunny is real—and I’ve got the pictures to prove it!
And to further your Easter delight, I present to you the finest Easter commercial of ALL TIME!
