My 13 year old daughter who is deaf still believes in the Easter Bunny. I think it has something to do with her not being able to hear people all around her talking about it! She still believes he brings eggs and an Easter basket, (which, of course, we worn out-THIRTEEN YEARS OLD-parents still provide.) Well, yesterday she had PROOF that the Easter Bunny exists. She went with her dad to the local mall and she went into the ladies room. As she was coming in, the Easter Bunny, (who MUST be a “she” because “she” used the ladies’ rest room,) came out of the handicapped stall. Now, I’m guessing she was using the handicapped stall so there would be enough room to take the costume down to use the toilet. Had Marie walked in 5 minutes sooner she would have seen what would have looked like a dead Easter Bunny sprawled on the bathroom floor! But, NOOOOO, she walks in as the Easter Bunny comes strutting out of the stall and waves to Marie. She is thrilled, of course! Then she stops and thinks. She yells after the Easter Bunny to come back, she forgot to wash her paws!!!!!!
