She's had one from my mum, one from mil, one from my mums NDN, one from my sister, one from holiday club and is doing an Easter egg hunt tomorrow.

That's plenty of chocolate for an almost 6yo surely?

Um... did you manage to decide to brush your own teeth this morning? grin

I think you've got this wink

I don't know why you'd even ask!

ssd Sat 15-Apr-17 12:03:49

I don't know why you'd ask either

CatThiefKeith Sat 15-Apr-17 12:05:55

Sorry, should perhaps have mentioned in the OP that dh is horrified that I haven't bought her one. Or Him blush

Just bung a fiver in her money box if you really want to do something.

Why don't u do something different instead? Maybe cinema or swimming rather then buy eggs as it does sound she has plenty.

Mine got loads and i bought them loads too, but i enjoy it. Your DD has plenty and if you'd rather not, don't.

Mine have one each. We will do a chocolate hunt too. That's enough.

Ellisandra Sat 15-Apr-17 12:07:54

Still should be a "my husband is wrong and being an idiot" thread grin

As for him - he can have one of her eggs wink she has too many!

WorraLiberty Sat 15-Apr-17 12:07:56

Cross posted.

'Horrified', seriously?

How does he react to awful world events? grin

If he's that bothered, why hasn't he bought her one?

I bought dd some tat from Flying Tiger - she will be delighted.

Easter seems to have become a real thing for my DHs side of the family. Big package from SIL with Christmas type gifts in. Cards and cash from others. Dh bought cards for his parents and mine but I am a bit reluctant to be frank.

CatThiefKeith Sat 15-Apr-17 12:09:09

Dh seems to think we should have bought her a large egg and bought each other one too.

We never have before, although I do usually buy her an egg.

I think he's sulking because he hasn't got one. He's thirty bloody two!

She can't not have an egg off her mum. I mean if money were a factor that would be entirely different, but. Not because other people have bought her one.

Passmethecrisps Sat 15-Apr-17 12:10:25

Why not aww? She has eggs from other people and is doing activities.

CatThiefKeith Sat 15-Apr-17 12:10:36

babyspider are you my dh? That's almost exactly what he said!

Ellisandra Sat 15-Apr-17 12:11:26

Can someone post the number for Childline up so I can pass it on to my daughter? grin
What nonsense is this that a child has to get an egg from their mum?
Consumerist crap.

I got an egg mould from tiger for a pound. You peel a boiled egg and shove it in the mould and it comes out heart shaped (they had cars too). That's fun, as are Eggheads kits (where you grow cress in ab egg shell).

Ellisandra Sat 15-Apr-17 12:12:30

As for his sulking...
Forgive me, but isn't Easter actually tomorrow? hmm

Oysterbabe Sat 15-Apr-17 12:15:31

Has he bought her one?

CatThiefKeith Sat 15-Apr-17 12:17:51

I won't see him much tomorrow he is working.

He hasn't got her an egg, but has apparently got me one. He can have that then. grin

Pinkheart2017 Sat 15-Apr-17 12:18:06

^Um... did you manage to decide to brush your own teeth this morning?^ I love that! tbugrin

OP she has more than enough chocolate, I wouldn't buy anymore. I don't know tell him to give her a £5 note or something if it horrifies him so much

Astro55 Sat 15-Apr-17 12:19:10

I always answer DH questions on these types of things as

You haven't brought an Easter egg??

Have you??

Straight back at him!!

KC225 Sat 15-Apr-17 12:19:23

My niece and nephew are not allowed any sugar, dairy or gluten (non medical reasons) so I took their kids to the cinema yesterday as a Easter treat in leui of an 'egg'

LadyDeadpool Sat 15-Apr-17 12:22:30

OP Can't fart without informing MN.

BadTasteFlump Sat 15-Apr-17 12:23:22

Get her something else she'd like - a book, small toy etc.

CatThiefKeith Sat 15-Apr-17 12:28:11

Surely a day out to a local attraction and an Easter Egg hunt is plenty? We're not even religious.

Thanks for that LadyDeadpool I thought you'd left but clearly you've only nc'd.
