Easter Surprises!

For Easter, I always have some theme gift for the kids’ baskets.  Past years have included: underwear, bubbles, toothbrushes/floss/toothpaste, comic books, pjs, etc.  THIS YEAR I found mini Chia Pets in the craft store at 50% off!  What a screaming deal.  The duck, elephant and frog were purchased.  My daughter, who is 16, is the only child who has embarked on her Chia Pet journey so far.  This morning I arrived in the kitchen to find her Chia Pet had “pony tails”…. well, isn’t that WHY you have Chia Pets???? To do their hair????  Then she told me that she has cut the hair twice already!  See!?!  Fun Fun Fun… all for $2.50! 

Yes, those are real shoe laces.  What would a Chia Pet be without shoe laces?  Yes, it’s true.  I never had a Chia Pet as a child, and I didn’t want my children going through life like I’ve had to…. Chia-Pet-less.  Making memories… that’s what this is all about!

    How adorable. I had a childhood lacking in chia, and I always look longingly at them in the store, debating on whether it’s worthy of the $$$. You’re so lucky to find them as a bargain. Jealous.

      Tanya, you made me laugh. I’ve since been informed that they are not officially chia pets……. I’m not informing my children.

    Are those real chia pets? That looks like grass, not chia. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I’m pretty sure that’s a grass-pet. :)
