I’m kind of combining two tags / writing prompts right now. This week’s Writer’s Workshop, which is hosted by the brilliant Mama Kat, includes the prompt: 6.

Easter Recap and Other Details From My Exciting Life.

I realized today that we’re already into the second (third?) week of April and I still haven’t really shared any Easter pictures and I think that might make me a terrible mommy blogger.
