So we went to the Easter Egg Hunt on base.
It's divided into age sections. We were in the 7-8 area.
Now, when a child is 7-8, I feel they can get their own eggs. Without the help of parents.
But when it was announced that the hunt had begun, I was stunned to see tons of parents out on the field SCOOPING UP EGGS!
I didn't understand.
See, there were golden eggs out there, and some golden eggs had a prize. I watched as some adults went for many golden eggs while shouting to their kid to HURRY OVER! so they could put them in their baskets.
When your kid gets older, let THEM get their own eggs. You have bigger hands. You can get more. It's not fair to the other children. Play fair, dammit.
Still, Natalie ended up having a fun time. She didn't get any golden eggs, thanks to the greedy adults, but she did get a lot of tootsie rolls, and she loves them.
But seriously? Adults? Back off. Your kid can get their own eggs, I promise.
