When you take your toddler to their first Easter egg hunt, you realize it can be brutal. As a parent, it's your first lesson in letting them succeed or fail on their own ... or not.

After we saw what can happen, I decided to dress up like the Easter Bunny and have one in my backyard, with some family and a few kids from the neighborhood. Once that was done, we went back to the official Easter Egg hunts we could find around New Jersey.
