Kids With Dad On Easter? Celebrate Early and Create Memories Anyway!

The Easter Bunny came early to my house this season! This year Anya spends spring break with her dad. You know it is that thing that happens when two people separate and have a kid together. But, a while back I decided not to allow tradition and celebrations to be broken because of a schedule. On Tuesday I put together an Easter basket and did a little Easter decorating so that we could still celebrate together. I made all of Anya’s favorite foods for a pre-Easter dinner and we spent the day dying Easter eggs, baking an Easter Bunny cake and finished off the evening cuddling in bed watching the Gospel of John.

Our pre-Easter bash lifted our spirits and made both of us feel as though we were still celebrating the holiday together. I know it’s difficult and heartbreaking not to spend these special days with your kids, but I encourage everyone to work around it so you can still celebrate as a family and create some memories. Don’t allow the situation to define whether or not you make these moments special. Take a look at the some of the fun we had!
