So we got up early Saturday, anxiously waiting for Aunt Melissa to get there. Of course we had to get the girls dressed because they would be mortified if the company came over and they were still in pajamas. So in a hasty rush to get dressed (and a shirt that is clearly too tight for Juliana) daddy and his extremely dry knuckle apparently scratched the heck out of Juliana's cornea. She didn't cry at first, just wouldn't open up the eye. After over an hour she still wouldn't open and then she started crying. And Juliana is not a cryer by nature. She will whine or complain at times, but never a cryer. This of course is right about the time that Aunt Melissa gets here. So we hugged and welcomed our guests as Juliana and I headed to the emergency room:(
Luckily while we were there, Olivia and Ty managed to die the eggs for us and get dinner going. We made it home around 5:15 with an official diagnosis: corneal abrasion. And p.s. she still wouldn't open her eyes. Like not at all. Not even for Mickey Mouse. She was like a little blind girl. So needless to say it put quite a damper on our Easter celebration, since a. she was in pain and b. she wouldn't open her eye. So we got through dinner and Juliana went to bed pretty early.
The good news is Liv and Ty still managed to play their hearts out. They literally played until 1am (I know, terrible parents) until they both literally fell to the ground and fell asleep. The grown ups quickly followed suit. Lights out.
Fast forward about 7 hours when Olivia hurls into the room devastated because guess what? The Easter Bunny didn't come. Our baskets were empty. Luckily I was quick on my feet and explained that since her and Ty stayed up so late, he probably came, realized there were kids awake and moved to the next house. This of course explained the problem but didn't make her feel better. She was so upset. So while she was eating breakfast, I. . . . I mean the Easter Bunny left some treats out back. Apparently when the kids stay up too late he just leaves surprises outside so no one sees him. Sneaky little bunny.
