Merry Easter

You know the people that have perfect meals and perfect holidays and everything goes perfectly as planned?

We aren’t those people.

I had very good intentions, I did. After Zoe asked me on Saturday if we had Easter to celebrate Jesus and HIS BIRTHDAY, I intended on everyone taking a trip to church for some Easter education. Growing up, we went to a very Southern Baptist church and I don’t really remember that much about it, other than we always painted ceramics in Sunday School, like a huge yellow triangle that said “Jesus On Board” (not kidding) and elderly people attended that church like it was their job.

But I do remember that Easter is NOT baby Jesus’ birthday.

Easter Sunday. The kids wake up and mosey into the living room to find their Easter baskets with a few goodies and a toy. Troy promptly exclaims, “KEEKA LAUS!”, which is toddlernese for SANTA CLAUS. Obviously Zoe must have explained what Easter was all about and I begin to wonder if it is indeed Jesus’ birthday. Enough is enough and we are so going to church. I think my exact words were “We are all going come hell or high water”.

And then a pipe attached to the downstairs toilet exploded and flooded the bathroom, the hallway and an entire bedroom closet.

By the time we used every single towel we owned and the Shop Vac to sop up the water, church was almost over. The “high water” also caused me to forget about my orange pound cake that I made-from scratch-was still cooling in its pan and needed to be removed, oh, about 86 minutes earlier. Apparently if you leave pound cake in its pan that it was baked in for longer than 10 minutes after you take it out of the oven, it tears and crumbles and looks like someone has already eaten it.

Refusing to accept defeat, my mother and I managed to prepare a nice meal. When we sat down to eat, Zoe raised her glass and said, “To Jesus and his birthday!”

Accepting defeat, I let the kids go outside an hunt Easter eggs. Because that’s how you celebrate birthdays around these parts.
