DYLANism: the Truth about Easter ~ Busted

~~ here is an oldie but goodie that I saw in my Reader yesterday as I reread this year’s Easter Post. This post from 3 years ago was an intro for things to come…..


Easter morning went off without a hitch this year. Through a series of poor communication, that my family is getting famous for, our girls ended up with four Easter baskets each. [same this year in 2018 ugh…something has to change!!] We have enough Easter candy in our home to fill a small Dollar General!

Dylan! Where did all that candy go?

Daddy! Whah do you mmmmean I have too much cammmdie. Dis isn’t mumpch at all!

We had Easter dinner. Ate our fill and beyond. Then clean up was left to moi, a.k.a. the Easter bunny.

So while I was cleaning up Dylan decided to go back to our computer and play with her adopted-pet stuffed-dog-thingy that she got for Christmas. You adopt your stuffed toy, give it a name, and then log on the computer to find out all about it; history birthday, favorite foods and such.

She came out of my office and confronted me about 3 minute later. She walks up into my face and firmly states, “I know who the Easter bunny is!”

Before I could get out a word she says, “its YOU isn’t it? I know it is.”

Me: “ahhhh…”

Dylan: “the receipt from the Target store is laying on top of the desk and at the top of it is everything that was in my Easter basket….”

Me: “ahhh….”

Dylan: “See? Ring pop. Peeps. Peeps. Chocolate Bunny. Sweet Tarts. Jelly Beans. Its YOU! I know its you, isn’t it?”

Me: “ahhh… Mommy and I bought you some stuff we thought we knew you would like to get you an extra basket cause you and Skylar have been so good this year.”

Dylan: “I knew it. I knew it…”

Seven years old! She is so going to be out smarting me when she becomes a teenager.

…or before. I am so in trouble!

I guess we will have to have a plan for Christmas. Pay in cash? Not very likely for this Santa Clause.

Today’s Significance

Well, I guess you have all figured out what today is….

It did not escape our little spunky one (I have to conserve names here to protect the guilty).

Yes, its APRIL FOOL’S Day!!

So Miss Spunky decided she would prank us all.

This morning when we all woke up and raced downstairs to find what the Easter Bunny dropped. ~ oh wait, that didn’t sound so good.

Easter Breakfast

…to see what the Easter Bunny left the girls, it turns out the Easter Bunny left everyone in the house an Easter Basket (I didn’t know anything about this! ~ which is not uncommon) and unmistakably, laying on top of everyone’s Easter Basket, was a brand new $20 bill!

Thank you Easter Bunny!!!

Well a little giggle came from the direction of Miss Spunky. Then She cried,

April Fools!

Don’t you know what today is?

She got us good.

She said “pick it up….”

Here she took a $20 bill and copied both sides of the bill on our copy machine. Then she trimmed the bills to size and glued the front and the back together.

The fake Easter currency looked very real but felt thick and stiffer.


Mom was quick to point out what she did was quite illegal and that she could get in a lot of trouble… 

….and with people who spank harder than daddy.

We all had a good laugh and went back to looking at the Easter Bunny droppings.

In the back of my mind was a take on the Easter chant,

“She’s in prison.”

She’s in prison indeed.”

Happy Easter Everyone!

And thank you Easter Bunny!

We made sure none of the funny Easter money made it to the offering plate later on that morning.

I guess I better go make sure that all bills are still accounted for.
