I need advice from other moms.

I messed up and I think I just ruined the Easter Bunny for my kids. Now I don't know what to do.

DH and I went shopping this morning and bought all the Easter goodies to hide. We don't do much, we try to keep the main focus of Easter on the religious aspect, but we do enough to keep the Easter Bunny alive. So I had a big box of kinder eggs and a couple little gifts to hide. DH had carried them into the house for me and I thought he took them up to our room so I never gave them a second thought. Unfortunately he just set them on the dinning room table and when the girls came home they not only saw them but asked to have the kinder eggs. I told them no they weren't for after school snack and quickly put them away, but I know come Sunday morning when DD1 sees that their chocolate this year is kinder eggs she will put 2 and 2 together.

So now what do I do? I'd really like to keep the magic alive at least for the younger two, and I'm kinda mad that I just ruined it for DD1, she's been questioning more ever since Christmas with Santa so I knew I didn't have much time left with her believing anyways, but I think this will end it completely.

Hate how little things like that happen

Can you not give them the Kinder eggs in their basket but give them to them from you and DH Sunday morning? Say for being so good about the upcoming move or something?

And then if possible, grab a different chocolate for them? I know that makes it harder on you guys, but if it buys you another year with keeping it alive for her, it might be worth it?

I like that Bree, it may just be time for something like that. She's one of the last few in her class who believe, so as long as she doesn't ruin it for her younger brother and sister then I can deal with her finding out.

I agree with Jessica! I would pick up some other little thing, give them the eggs from you guys, and they'll never be the wiser!

Apparently we posted at the same time!.. If you make her a part of the "big secret" I'm sure she won't tell them, just make her feel included and I'm sure she'll enjoy being the only one who knows!

My parents also let me take over hiding the eggs for my siblings when I was told. It really helped ease the transition and made me feel more grownup.

Hmm, that's a good idea too, maybe that would help with the transition for her. It would help make her feel part of it too.
