Another Easter is over. The bunny made his appointed rounds, bringing lots of candy for everyone.
If your kids are like mine, they didn't waste any time devouring the goodies in their baskets. But I hopeyour children didn't awaken you at 3 a.m. Easter Sunday, like my daughter, Kassandra, and son, Kevin. At that hour, chocolate bunnies andEaster eggs were the last things I wanted to see. I ordered them back to bed, telling them to get up at a more civil hour. I hope your day was less hectic.
