Hatching Chickens and Cadbury Egg Dip

You know that strange place in the middle, where hatching eggs, and eggs you eat, and even chocolate eggs designed to look like real eggs somehow all meet in the middle? And it’s ok, and perhaps even palatable to be immersed in all three at once?

Maybe? Maybe a little?

This Cadbury Creme Egg Dip is made with Cadbury Eggs, and other easy ingredients and is so delicious! Serve with fruit, cookies, or graham crackers. #recipe

It’s been one of those days. Today, a Monday – and a cold, rainy wet at that – featured a collision of.. everything. Des’ preschool got chicken eggs several weeks ago, and it’s been a big race for them to hatch. Their “due date” was today, which I found out is definitely more accurate than human due dates. Basically, if all goes well, chicken eggs will hatch within three days of their due date! This is exciting! So I signed Des up for extended day and I signed myself up to be a class parent.

Then Monday morning – THE DUE DATE – rolled around, and Cassidy was out the door before dawn. I found out two minutes before we were leaving to go, that one of the eggs hatched over the weekend. It put me in such a tizzy. I was looking for backpacks, water bottles, snacks, and lunches, all with only minutes to spare. I had wanted Scarlet to stay home from school and be “Big Sister of the Day” to my “Parent of the Day” at the preschool, but I couldn’t make a rational decision by myself. And, I didn’t know how long the other hatchings would be anyway, but then you factor in trying to do right by everyone.

I had two blog posts to do today! Granted, one was this one and it’s non-sponsored.

I still had/have to prep tomorrow’s posts and do a million other work things, but when nature is calling and it’s giving both your kids a chance to watch the miracle of life, you have to answer that call, right? This is everything I know about parenting.

We marched into the classroom, got Des situated, and then got Scarlet situated. I agreed to let her stay with me for two hours as Parent/Big Sis Of The Day, and then to take her to school. I called her school in a supply room with the door shut – telling them the truth about why Scarlet would be tardy. Of course, they were awesome about it because it IS life-altering.

Also, I got to see Scarlet read a book to a bunch of preschoolers, which must have been affirming to the very teacher there who taught Scarlet as a three and four-year-old! Another major thing is that being a bit of a “fly on the wall” is really special in school settings with your kids. It’s not that I don’t believe my kids’ teachers when they say they’re kind and happy (most important), well-liked (also important because of kindness factor), and also doing well academically (not as important – sorry to say). It’s that they can wear and tear at me at home, and it’s important to see it in practice. I think we can all agree that it’s much more embarrassing to have a kid who bullies, than a kid who is bullied, Personally, I prefer neither. I bet we all do.

That said, the weekend was awesome. Another sugar shack, “PEEPS Day” at Yankee Candle, and parties and stuff.

    • Baby chicks are almost too cute to handle! Right now they’re in their awkward, half-feathered period, but we already love them because of the cuteness we’ve seen.

    • They didn’t all hatch, but that’s to be expected. 6 out of 12 hatched! Luckily, the kids didn’t count and ask where the others were!

    • I agree. I had just one over Easter season! I had more than one of the mini eggs, but I only allowed myself one small bag. Not bad for me!

  1. How sweet that Scarlet read to the class, her former teacher had to be so proud. And she looks like such a big girl!! Where is time going?
