Happy Belated Easter

Does that title even make sense?

It's not that I forgot. It's just that, you know, life happens. Sometimes the blog takes awhile to catch up.

So I made Betty this sweet little Easter outfit, and then she was sick and we missed church.

Oh, and I found the decapitated head of a bunny in the yard.

On Easter morning.

Sometimes you think a day is going to go a certain way, and then it just doesn't, you know?

Sometimes you applique a toile bunny on a t-shirt, and sew a sweet little tiered skirt.

Sometimes, Mamaw brings over a sweet little Easter bonnet and gloves.

Sometimes kids get fever.

Sometimes your kid gets blue Easter egg dye on her face and looks like Pat Benatar.

And sometimes your dog eats the Easter bunny.

But Jesus is alive, and nothing else matters.

So we celebrated anyway.

See how gravely ill she is?

Cough, cough.

All this posing and cuteness is hard work, Mom.

I'm not sure why the boots. Maybe the bonnet makes her think of a cowgirl?
Personally I would have gone with a ballet flat, but to each his own.

See the eyeshadow? Blue fingers I expected, but the face?

Why did I let her dye her own eggs??? Have I learned nothing?

Mommy MD - I clicked on your link from Femina. Hope you won't mind me commenting. I am fascinated by your journey home after the rigors of medical school and residency. My husband is a physician (4 years out of residency) and I've always marvelled at the women we've been acquainted with in the medical profession. Would you be willing to share your story. You must have a story LOL! No one gives up medical school without a story. Belssings, Jenny

Mrs. Story, I'm not ignoring you. I have had a crazy week and wanted to give you a thoughtful answer. I have posted some about this here and here, at the end. I have been asked to write more, about women in medicine in general, and I plan to someday. It's on the back burner. ; )
