Foto Friday: What A Mother Of Twins Can Expect At The Easter Bunny. Pictures & Quick Story. (An Amusing Must Read!)
Ever take 2 year old twins to the Easter Bunny? It’s quite a fun time really. You will always show up there during a ‘bunny break’, and when Mr. Rabbit is said to be coming back at 5 you can be certain he will return at 1/2 past the hour.
Chasing bunny bottoms from one side of the mall to the other is always a treat. Dodging moving escalators, sweat dripping from your brow as you run in multiple directions.
Tots darting into shoe stores attempting to dismantle displays and empty out boxes. I must say it’s an absolute blast.
There is some of this before you leave on your venture.
Every bunnies happy!
There’s even some comradery.
A little bit of this when you are there.
Aw, what a darling face. I’m sure the behavior of such a face is equally as sweet and innocent (not).
Then the picture changes a bit if you check out the far off background in this one.
Feel free to enlarge if need be.
But to break it down honestly, this is far more depictive of the majority of your wait time.
At least dad is sitting..for now.
Headwear off for the umpteenth time.
Let the meltdowns begin!
“Oh..hi mom. You’re filming this?”
Mom thinks, ‘Get here damn bunny. Get here fast!’
Despite the smile I was ready to head up to the food court and pull Mr. Rabbit down by his big, floppy ears !
(Of course, nobody takes pics of the ten thousands sprints I ran in high shoes no less, to protect the lives of my cubs.)
Take mommy’s money just BEHAVE!
Then, when your $30 is paid up and you receive your picture you are either going to lay eyes on either a gaggle of screaming mammies, with faces so red they look more like a set of tiny, alcoholic Santa Clauses. Or at best you’ll get something like this.
The best mugs out of 6 pics. Sorry the hub remains shy.

A shell-shocked ‘I’d rather be anywhere but here, please remove me from this place stat’, type of look in the eyes. Almost like a deer caught in the headlights. Truly, at this age, this look is the best you are going to do. If you go in expecting smiles, you WILL come out severely disappointed.
Moral of the story?
Check on the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus in your local mall’s hours for breaks before packing up multiples and heading out the door. You’ll save yourself a lot of sweat and tears.
PS- Mothers of higher order multiples? Just have your hubby rent a rabbit costume, put up a sheet, and do the pictures at home. I can’t begin to EVEN imagine! That’s all I can say about that one.
Best of luck!
