They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. This March, our beloved pediatrician announced he’s closing his practice, my bank account got hacked through PayPal, and I had a root canal. That lion roared till the bitter end.

root canal time!

But now — finally — it’s April. And near the top of this April comes Easter, the time of year that celebrates renaissance and renewal. Of course I made myself an Easter playlist to help kickstart 2012’s next chapter, so put on your flower headband and get ready to download.

I’ve categorized my Easter jams above, but come Easter morning I’ll shuffle them all into one big mix while we hunt eggs and chomp candy. (No jelly beans for me since I’m playing hostess to a temporary crown on molar #19.)

Here’s my little chick-a-dee with the Easter Bunny himself. She wasn’t that impressed. The bunny was “running late” and, despite my planning, we ended up in his lap right at nap time. I took her last week when it was still March. Perhaps I should have waited till April. 😉
