When Guinevere was 9 months old, she LOVED the Easter Bunny. She could not wiggle over to him fast enough and kept laughing and petting him. Last year, she LOVED the Easter Bunny. This year, she couldn’t stop talking about how excited she was to go see the Easter Bunny. We told her last week we’d be going on Sunday and it was so hard for her to be patient. On Sunday morning she exploded into our room “hurry up, let’s go, we need to see the Easter Bunny!” She kept having little mini tantrums because she was SO.EXCITED and Tyler and I were just not getting dressed/eating breakfast/loading up the car fast enough.
We are finally on our way to the mall and she is chattering away about seeing the bunny and sitting on his lap and telling him the present she wants. We get out of the mall and she is dragging us behind her, sprinting as fast as she can with the two of us firmly holding a hand. We finally arrive to the Easter garden woodland area in the mall, and she is dashing to the front of the line for her turn. We walk in and she waves at him…then steps a bit closer and looks at him…and turns to us and announces that bunnies do NOT wear glasses.
All that anticipation, all that joy – my child thought this guy was a ridiculous fraud. She wanted to go see the real Easter Bunny, the one that doesn’t wear silly glasses. She didn’t really have a huge meltdown – just firmly declared “NO FANKS” when we urged her to go sit on his lap and take a picture. Tyler tried to get her to watch the other kids interact with him, but she was already done with the whole thing.
Although, she was really bummed she didn’t get a lollipop.
I sort of wish I had thought about forcing her, to at least have a crying picture since I have one from the last two years, but I was so shocked by her dismissal of him so quickly that I was all “Alright then, lets go home.” Thank god for Photoshop.
I guess in her defense, the other bunnies definitely weren’t wearing glasses.
