A Healthier Easter


This is the first Easter
No candy baskets will be here
But we had so many baskets
Each and every year.

The kids are older now
Candy they don’t want anymore
So this Easter the baskets sit empty
Behind the closet door.

Somehow I want the Easter Bunny here
Want those baskets filled with eggs so bright
But my teens want to be healthier
So they make sure that they eat right.

They forfeit sugar and junk
No more Peeps or a big chocolate bunny
But being without Easter Baskets on Easter
Seems to be very odd and funny.

So I am putting the word out
To the Easter Bunny in my town
That I don’t think the teens will mind
If you decide to come around.

Maybe you could leave some health bars
Perhaps some fruit and veggies too
And maybe you could put some books in there
Those things could still say “I love you”.

    Connie,
    I just have to say that there is something really wrong,
    with the Easter Bunny giving baskets full of celery sticks!
    It is kind of like the tooth fairy giving coupons for 10 %
    off of your next purchase of school supplies!
    BUT ... it IS politically correct!
    and you know that the kids will love it!
    Christmas has to be a real ' Hoot! ' in your house !
