Last year, at Easter time, Annabelle was a few months shy of two. I was excited to decorate eggs with her but knew she wasn’t quite ready to dye them. I figured it wouldn’t be much fun for her to plop an egg in a cup full of colored water and then have to wait and wait and wait while the color took.
So I decided to let her paint the eggs instead. Because she was used to the plastic eggs we had been playing with around the house, the first things she did when she got her hand on the hard boiled egg…was to crack it and rip it open.
