An Overheard Conversation

Neighbor Girl Who Lives Across the Street, in 2nd grade: The Easter Bunny isn't real.

My Younger Daughter, in kindergarten: The Easter Bunny isn't real (!?!?!???!!!)

Neighbor Girl: My mom told me.
{Aside from the editor: And obviously forgot to mention the important caveat about keeping mouth shut around younger children regarding such topics.}

My Older Daughter, in 2nd grade (and coming to the rescue): It's not polite to talk like that about other peoples' beliefs.

Neighbor Girl: Oh, sorry. I was just sort of in a bad mood.


  1. That is amusing on so many levels....

  2. I'm dying over here. That's hilarious.

  3. WHAT!?! The Easter bunny isn't real??? Next you'll be telling me four-leaf clovers don't bring good luck. It's a slippery slope. (If only there were more polite people in the world! :

  4. A treasured interplay of thoughts and emotions here!

  5. We'd all better watch our bad moods! Just think of what we might be trampling on.

  6. thanks for sharing - really great story, and it taught me much.
