Today’s the day I convince the children that they must have forgotten that their chocolate bunny was already tail-less when they went to bed last night.

Silly children, of course you ate that part yesterday. Or perhaps the cat licked it? Kitties love chocolate and are never to be trusted around it. Yes, the cat.
If there was a cat-proof Easter basket alarm system, my kids would have anted up their allowances years ago.
I still don’t know why they leave baskets unattended at night. Do they not remember what happens at night after Easter? Tiny elves tiptoe into the house and eat all the Resee’s peanut butter eggs. The licorice jellybeans are curiously left untouched.
Should your children ever find that the licorice jellybeans HAVE been touched, snagged, confiscated, etc. please feel free to blame Red Dirt Kelly, resident of the great state of Oklahoma and lover of all black jellybeans. Also – tell them I'm nice. ~ RDK
Everyone in Oklahoma is nice. I will gladly ship the black jellybeans to you. They seem to hang around well into May.

Haven't your children heard of the Mommy Tax? Mine heard about it from age 2 onwards — before age 2 their baskets were boring 🙂
I think I just like being sneaky, Julia.
I do have a mommy tax on Halloween candy since I have to work the door that night. I hate working the door.

Thank God those Robin eggs are gone now. Nobody else in the house liked them either. I just got a teeny sample size carton of them, and I feel awful.
Which begs the question: why doesn't Lent FOLLOW Easter, so that all the naughty candy stealing Mommies can do penance THEN?
Love you, Nota!
Those peanut butter eggs never survive the night at my house either.
Susan, I don't like a lot of jellybeans but the Trader Joe's brand I bought get a big thumbs up. Try them next Easter.
Jessica, I have a kid who doesn't like pb, so I claim hers. Mmm!
You crack me up!! You put in words what goes on in so many homes!!
Thanks so much, Mary. Sometimes I do worry it's just me.
What? You have elves?? My kids have never gone for that one. They straight out tell people…Mommy eats it all! ;0) But hey, it helped me break the habit!
I LOVE LICORICE JELLY BEANS!!! fern
I am currently contemplating what reason I can give the kids that the jellybeans are missing. I am thinking that we will implement the mommy tax!
Silly moms! Don't you know you're supposed to keep out a stash for yourselves? Or else find an excuse to go to the store the day after Easter to snatch up those after-Easter bargains.
LOL!!! I have been wheeling and dealing with my children for 2 days now, trying to get at their Cadbury creme eggs!
Lol!!! Too funny! Love the cartoon too 😉
Here from HHH.
My daughter never liked chocolate and my son lived for it. He'd eat his bunny and then he'd sneak into her room and take a bite. She'd complain. He'd apologize. Next day he'd sneak in and take a bite. This went on til the bunny was gone — every year.

I am presently on a Kit Kat high.
Maureen, that's so funny. You'd think she'd take preventive measures.
Alethea, I'd have to fight my older daughter for the KitKats. And the Peppermint Patties. She's gracious with anything with peanut butter, though.
