I don't want them to grow up too quickly and miss what being young and carefree is all about.
I want them to enjoy it all. But being their mom, I want to be part of their enjoyment too...So far so good.

The Egg for Lent

I have figured it out, the sneaking in of the Easter Egg (a certain little chocolate foiled egg in the 'splat' commercials specifically) on to  supermarket shelves the day after Christmas: Lent.
What do most people give up?? Chocolate. How is Cadbury's supposed to sell all their cute little chocolate eggs if people give chocolate up for Lent? Start selling them right after Christmas so people will have had enough of them by Lent and not miss them until Easter!! Perfect plan. 
My teenage chick LOVES these little eggs and buys them in six packs when the mood strikes. By Lent when she feels the need to give something up for religious purposes or peer pressure, she feels she can give up the foiled egg, no problem. 
What an egg!
She has had two months of them so won't miss them for a while. That's my theory  anyway. I don't really know what Cadbury's thinks. 


  1. I think you are right on the button!

  2. Hmmm, not so sure....I've given up chocolate for Lent and am already climbing the walls (and I've had more than my fair share of those little eggs since Xmas!!)

  3. This post made me smile. My daughter loves these as well!

    I saw a joke on Twitter the other day: 'I've given up cheap chocolate for Lindt.'
