I want to take my daughter to see the Easter Bunny, but i'm....

SCARED! Adult woman scared of the EB, I know, silly. I have always been scared of costumes and masks, I HATE Halloween too! I would LOVE to overcome this, but not sure how. I'm desperate, can't even go to Chuck E. Cheese without mommy being freaked out by that big rat!

  • What is it that bothers you about the costumes? You know that there are people in the costumes right? They are just playing a part. I had a friend who has a son who was afraid of the easter bunny too. I thought that it was funny at the time. They don't seem to bother me for what ever reason I don't know. I guess that I was being insensitive at the time. I hope that you get over your fear of costumes.

  • Hey, save yourself the stress; and don't do near those strangers in the costumes! It's not that important to your child; it's probably because you think it would make a more interesting picture, right? The portrait of your child is really the memory that you want, so just have it done- without the people in costumes! :-) Good luck! P.S. - I still get the creeps around Mall Santas - since I must have been "forced" at one time - to have a picture taken - that I didn't want. I never force my child if either he, or I, feel uncomfortable in a situation.

  • Sounds like you had some child-hood trauma with you remember being scared as a kid?? I guess you've never been to Disneyworld then...

  • If you really want your child picture taken then have someone else take your child.
