I'm not sure if he "believes", I do tell him that the Easter bunny is coming/has been, and he seems excited about it, but he's probably just thinking "Treaaaatttsss!!!!" lol!

My niece just turned 4 and I do not think she got it until this year. And even so it took her until Easter am to really figure it out!! She got up and could not believe the easter bunny left her a basket and eggs to find. She was thrilled! And yes this baby will believe also!

LOL my kids believe. But someone told my 7 year old to ask me a horrible question. He asked me of the bunny left Cocoa Puffs across the yard.

We'll probably have the Bunny stop by on Easter. It's never been a big holiday for us before, but now it will be!
Thank you JAIDYNSMUM for my adorable new siggy!

Me and hubby were just talking about it the other day, not sure!
We don't want to lie to them about any of those characters but of course want to have fun and let their imaginations run.

DS believes in the bunny but he wasn't nearly excited as he was at xmas about santa. It was the year time he was REALLY into xmas and santa and it was so great, I cannot wait until next year to do it all again. It is really great to let their imaginations run with it. They get to deal with reality soon enough!

My DS believes in the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Santa, etc. I love that he still has the innocence in believing in magical things. This year the Easter bunny left him a basketball, soccer ball and a water bottle and he walked around all day saying "I love the Easter Bunny!"

Thank you Vicki... for my awesome siggy!

My ds is only 2 1/2 so there is no real association yet. We're making them (the characters) apart of the holiday but not saying look what santa or the easter bunny brought you. ... stuff is still from mommy and daddy. this is how i was brought up and i still loved holidays!

DD is only 2y 3mo, and so she doesn't get the characters yet, but we do tell her that the Easter Bunny left things... so, we'll probably continue through with it
Gwynne, celebrating the newest of our four precious miracles

Hat's off to Vicki for my cute siggy, thank you!

Nope. The kids know that I hide the eggs for them.

They always did when they were younger and up until last year my youngest still did, however this year he didn't mention the "bunny" at all and plainly said, "Hide my basket hard this year mom" like he already knew it was mom and dad putting together the baskets and hiding them...hmmm...he did just turn 7 though so guess that's to be expected.

Thank you so much Alethia for my GORGEOUS siggy!!

Since DD's only 21 months she doesn't know yet. Im sure we will tell her when she gets older. We are not Religious so we dont celebrate the Religious aspect of any Holiday but we still celebrate and would like our kid's to as well.

My oldest DD is all excited about the Easter Bunny and Santa and all that fun stuff. She is always telling me she wants to have a tea party with Santa. I like that she believes in the magic and I will encourage it as long as possible.

Tenli is only 2 and I don't think she fully understands the concept. She associates the Easter bunny with eggs.
Thank you *Kiliki* for the awesome siggie!

My oldest believes. I don't think there is anything wrong with letting them have some magical moments in the innocence of their childhood.

We also explain the religious aspect of the holidays.
