Time is running out to answer one of the eternal annual questions. How many Easter eggs should we have for each grandchild to color? I can almost hear the scoffing of those of you in the audience who donít have grandchildren. And true, Lori and I never wrestled with that question with our own children. They got a dozen eggs each. End of story, quit whining, life isnít always fair. You know the lecture.

However, things have changed. Kahlynn, age 4, Blake, age 2, and Ellason, age 4 months are in a different category. Last year we, mistakenly, got the standard two dozen each. They went through the eggs at warp speed and had soon colored them all, seeming let down, heartbroken and disappointed when they were gone. Grandma was headed for the car to get more eggs, but I intervened. I mean, we not only had two dozen real eggs, but that many plastic eggs filled with candy as well.

There are other factors involved. How many Easter eggs did the other grandparents get for the kids? And who wants to be labeled the ďnot so funĒ grandparents?
