No we do not want to compete. But really - how to explain to a 6 yr old why his Easter basket was small with only a couple of little things, a toothbrush and some candy. Because his friends went on and on about all the toys and candy they got. One boy got 4 lego sets and another a big nerf gun almost as tall as him. I happened to be in the class Monday morning and heard it all. I was shocked. Though I should not be surprised. We had to deal with the "why does the tooth fairy leave so and so $20 and me only $2". Though at least the tooth fairy is random. Easter is, in his class, everyone at the same time. My DS was in tears this morning before school about it. He was thrilled with Easter until he went to school. Argh! I was thinking of telling him I think maybe the parents added in toys because I never heard of an Easter Bunny leaving lego sets. But then I got worried he would tell the other boy and that would lead to other problems.
