FI's 4-year-old niece was staying with FMIL this weekend. We happened to spend a lot of money on an Easter egg hunt and Easter basket for her that she would be hunting for this weekend (since we won't see her on Easter), which we were hiding in FMIL's old closet which is now a construction site for a new bathroom. We thought this was a decent hiding place. Who would let a four-year-old into a construction site?
Well. Tonight. FMIL showed her the eggs. And let her open two of them.
I was livid. There was lots of wine involved. FI was furious as well. She had the audacity to say that we shouldn't get upset.
Anyways, the eggs were all apart of an elaborate visit from the Easter bunny. If she knows the eggs are from us, the plan kind of falls apart. Is there any way to salvage this?
I suggested buying empty eggs from the dollar store, replacing those with the ones she saw in the closet, blatently pointing out the new ones in the closet, and then the old eggs magically appearing in the backyard.
Ideas? I'm so mad that I'm ready to throw all the stuff out.
PS sorry for the super long post
