I feel like a bad mommy!

This is my little ones first Easter. We are honestly so broke that we cannot afford anything extra! I know my little one won't know that I didn't get them anything but I will! :(

  • Easter is the celebration of the ressurection of Jesus, not chocolate bunnies. Love your daughter with all your heart as Christ intended you to, your not a bad mom!

  • Thank you ladies! You are right it is about Christ!
    I needed to hear that. I really wish I could afford something.
    My SIL has a little girl two weeks older than mine & she is talking about all the things she got her little girl :(

  • Don't worry about it. We are not going to do anything for our baby she is to little to ever remember it. Save your effort for when you can tell her about the easter bunny and then go to a community easter egg hunt! Holidays are what you make of them!

  • Don't feel bad. I had my daughter on Christmas eve so her first Christmas was never actually celebrated. She didn't have presents or anything.

  • What about your parents? Would they help you out if you told them that you could not afford anything for your child on a Holiday? If my son or daughter for some reason could not afford to play the Easter bunny or Santa, i would step in and do what i could to help out.
