This last Sunday was Easter and as usual, my wife, Sarah goes all out with the gifts.
Sarah will usually buy all of Finn’s Easter presents way before Easter and then find great hiding places, so that he doesn’t see them before the big day. Many times, she will put the baskets together in her car, during a work day lunch, and hide them in the trunk.
This year, due to the pandemic, Sarah had to pre-order the gifts on the Target website. We were instructed to drive to the store and pick it up.
Since Sarah had to make a few curbside delivery or pickup stops, I proposed that we all go together in my car, so we could all hang out.
We made our first 2 stops and then drove to Target.
As one person would leave, then they would allow another to enter. The line outside was about 30 people deep.
Sarah got into the line, while Finn and I waited in the car. About 30 minutes into us waiting, Finn decided he needed to go to the bathroom.
When I got out of the car, Sarah was still in line and almost ready to go into the store. So we decided that Finn can go to the bathroom, when Sarah gets inside the store.
After the bathroom break and some shopping, Sarah and Finn came out of the store and he was holding a Nerf gun and saying, “Look at what mommy bought me.” Sarah’s face was intense. She responded, “Yea, I decided to get him these toys for him to play with.”
When we got home, Finn straight out asked his mommy, “Are you the Easter bunny?”
Sarah, in the least convincing face said, “NOOO. Why would you say that?”
He responded, “I think you bought those gifts for Easter.”
I responded, “I don’t think so.” He then grabbed me and said, “Come with me.” He walked me to Sarah’s car and the back seat was full of Easter basket and candy. He pointed in the car and he said, “LOOK!” My response, “Man I don’t know. I don’t think so.”
When I told Sarah, she was totally bummed. She then told me that now he’s going to figure out the Santa deal too.
I love the innocence of him believing in all that stuff.
But as long as he doesn’t figure out the Tooth Fairy, I’m cool.
