16 Toddler Easter Basket Fillers – That Aren’t Candy

It still blows my mind that I HAVE A TODDLER! How did this happen? When did this happen? It feels like I was just rocking a nursing newborn to sleep a month ago. Now, I’m chasing after my almost 14-month-old and begging him not to eat the cat food. Motherhood is quite the rollercoaster but it’s a heck of a ride!

When you don’t have children, some holidays are bland andEaster was always one of those holidays for me. I’m not religious nor do I attend a church. So as you can imagine, Easter without kids is just an ordinary day at home watching all your friend’s eat potluck dinners and post photos of their colorful, overdressed children. I absolutely envied every second of that. When you don’t have children and all your friends do, it’s a lonely feeling. My point in telling you this is to say that I dreamt of these first holiday celebrations for a very long time, in secret. Now, here I am! Doing all the things and sharing them with other mama’s who are just like me – clueless, grateful, and enthusiastic.
