I HATE dyeing eggs.
There, I said it! Am I now the worlds worst mother? I really hope not but seriously, I really, really hate it. And before people start hating on me, I don't deprive my kids of the fun and mess of this activity. I suck it up and play along because that's what every GREAT mother would do, right?
I wouldn't say I'm a complete neat freak, just a partial neat freak. And with three kids, two of which are still into dyeing eggs, there's nothing neat about this. I wish I was the experimental mom that pulled veggies out of my fridge to make all natural dyes, but who am I kidding? I head right to the store and buy the Paas kits that come with the pathetic metal "wand" and the dye tablets. As much as I would love to see the natural colors that can can come of natural dyes (like, purple cabbage dyes things a beautiful blue), I do not have the time. I wish I did, but I don't. So...Paas it is!
Totally and completely beautiful dyed eggs, right?! But at the end of the day, my kids enjoy themselves, we've created another Easter memory, and we'll be having "egg" everything for the next week.
So, am I on an island? Am I the only Grinch who hates dyeing eggs? :-)
