I was woken this morning by the youngest muppet, I heard him walking through the hallway because he sings the “Imperial March” from Star Wars where ever he goes. “Wake up mummy” he said softly “It is Easter Bunny day and there is a basket of treats and lots of chocolate for you”
He led me down the stairs and he and his brothers started hunting for easter eggs. The youngest muppet was interested in the eggs for about 10 seconds and then asked me if he could eat his chocolate bunny. Dave diverted his attention back to the egg hunt. I could see that all he really wanted was that bunny in his belly!! The poor kid really didn’t stand a chance where chocolate is concerned, both his father and I are chocoholics!
After breakfast each muppet had a few chocolate eggs, I told them the bunnies were for later in the day. At 7:50am both the middle muppet and youngest were standing beside my chair with sad little I need more chocolate faces on. “We just want to eat the bunny mum, then we won’t eat anymore” begged the middle muppet who has the sweetest tooth in all the land and a reputation of eating so many sweets that he gets sick. I told them to talk to their dad, I was done trying to regulate the chocolate consumption for the day.
The muppets were told that they could eat the ears off their bunnies and then save the rest for another day. They happily agreed to these terms and I opened the boxes one by one for each of them. The oldest and the middle muppet let me break off the ears for them but our littlest independent muppet had to do it himself. I hadn’t even gotten the other to bunnies back in to their boxes yet when the middle muppet yelled out “He’s eating the whole thing Mum!! He has eaten not just the ears but the head too!!” The youngest muppet guiltily handed me the half eaten bunny with a chocolate grin on his face.
The Easter candy is now in a high security facility and I am sure the youngest muppet is planning his strategy to break in and steal the rest of his Chocolate Bunny!
Happy Easter to you all!!
