Hey did you know that its Easter next week? Yeah. For reals. It is Easter next week. How did that happen? I still have a box of Christmas decorations sitting on the landing waiting to go up in the loft.

I’ve committed a terrible sin against my son this year and asked people to steer clear of buying him too much chocolate. Not because I don’t believe in chocolate for kids. I believe in it as a genius bribe and distraction technique. But because at Easter there is always such an excess of chocolate, family, nursery, friends – everyone’s pelting chocolate eggs in his direction and he only ends up eating some of it, over that Easter weekend. And then do you know what happens? I eat it, well the good bits anyway. Yes, I eat his decent chocolate from the Easter Bunny (and from Santa as well). I know, I’m a terrible Mother. He’s only two, he can’t count past four, he’s doesn’t realise some are missing.

I also eat the cakes from his party bags, he never remembers.

So my plan this year is to stage an Easter Egg hunt for him using Aldi’s FREE Activity Egg Hunt Printable which you can find here. It contains pre-written clues and blank ones so you can make up your own. Plus some handy arrows and START and FINISH signs. I’m going to pick up some plastic coloured eggs and fill them with different treats, some will have little chocolates like the Mini Beanie Eggs from Aldi and some will contain Thomas Mini’s or Peppa Pig stickers.

Hopefully he wont get too much chocolate from the other Easter Bunny’s in his life, I don’t think my waist line could take it.

    I've bought my daughter three Easter eggs so far and had to replace them all; it's just too much of a temptation buying any more just yet

    Haha, I completely understand, in fact I wrote an article of non-candy easter gifts, because there's just too much sometimes. #MMWBH

    Haha – I do that! Mine are both under 3 & they do eat chocolate (& love it), but only occasionally & in small amounts. So anytime they get given loads, they won’t get through it with the rations I give them, so I help out! Out of the goodness of my heart! #MMWBH

    I always want to eat the cake from the party bags but my eldest 2 are 8 and 6 and that’s the bit they love the most…no cake for me 😭
    Love the sound of the Aldi egg hunt. I’m going to check it out.
    Easter is such a tough time – I can’t resist the sodding Creme eggs!!!!!x

    I’m actually being really mean this year and haven’t, and don’t plan on, buying my kids an easter egg. They have (a little bit) of chocolate most days anyway and other family members will.probably buy them.one so Ijust don’t think I need to. Otherwise they will end with so much that I will end up eating it. Also my youngest has only just turned two and my four year old has learning delays so they don’t really understand about easter eggs anyway.

    😂 I am gasping for breath I am laughing so hard! I have to go and buy Easter eggs for my Munchkins AGAIN. I thought I was being very organised by getting them a month in advance…not so…it just serve as a better opportunity for me to snaffle them in front of the telly at night. #fabfridaypost

    I also admit to eating the eggs. Last year I ended up melting them down and using them as a topping for some brownies. OOpppss!

    You know what? You are not the only one about the Christmas decorations box. I still have them in my lounge too! What a terrible mum I am! I also eat my Ethan’s cake and sweets from his party bags and Halloween bag too! & My waist line is growing as we speak! I think I can avoid Easter this year as we are in Thailand – but I will still probably be expanding anyway due to overindulgent of Thai Food!! Thank you Sarah for linking up with us as always on #FabFridayPost. xx

    Love it! I’ve bought our kids relitively cheap eggs, so that when they get the more expensive proper eggs from everyone else they won’t realise they are missing, its genius.

    One of these Halloween’s mine will figure out that her bucket got much lighter over night. She doesn’t get a ton for Easter, so her stash is safe

    I used to do that but I’ve started using an app that tells me how many extra calories I consume so I think I’ll be stopping that this year. Plus, my boy is seven has already worked out I “steal” his chocolate. Oh the shame. I may indeed check out the Aldi Easter Egg Hunt though.#FabFridayPost

    I use chocolate as bribes too… high five! And I love Aldi selection of easter chocolate they look so expensive but are so cheap! Literally cleared the shelf last week. I’m debating an easter Egg hunt. I will take a peek at their printable and decide whether my babes are too young…

    Hehe, I thought it was just what was expected of us as responsible parents – eating all that nasty chocolate so they don’t have to. 😉 #effitfriday

    We don’t buy Easter/Halloween chocolates until the day or two before. And even then it’s no guaranteed it will all get hidden. Lead me not into temptation… I can find it just fine on my own 🙂

    We do that too. If that’s our worst parent fail, then she’ll have got off lightly. Enjoy your chocolate 🙂

    You are not alone. True confessions – I have eaten the birthday chocolates she gets from the birthday kids at preschool in the car on the way home while she sits in the back seat unaware of what a horrible mother I am.

    Thank you for the laugh and for the comfort of knowing I am not alone. #FabFridayPost

    I could have possibly, perhaps, maybe, perchance have eaten the odd chocolate egg belonging to my boys …. not now though – they can count and at least one is bigger than me! #pocolo

    Haha the Christmas decorations could be me and I love that you eat his Birthday party cakes as I do that too. We love Aldi and the easter egg hunt sounds like a great idea, I will pick some up if they have any left when I go. Thanks for linking to #PickNMix
