    That's what I found with DD who is 3. She was meltdown central yesterday when she could see cupcakes and chocolate everywhere and we said no as she had to eat lunch first.

    I've told her today that she only gets one chocolate a day now Easter is over.

    My ds is only just 12 months, we did a little easter egg hunt with him which included some toys which he loved but then the family also gave him copious amounts of chocolate. I now have no idea what I'm going to do with it all!

    Just had a proper look.

    From DH's parents- pjs, dressing gown and Lindt bunny each (DSD's is white choc),
    From us/bunny- med size egg (DSD's white choc) and a mini Haigh's bilby choc.
    From my parents- med size creme egg (DSD) and med size caramel egg (DSS).
    From uncle- book each and small Lindt bunny (both milk choc).

    So, they got 500g of chocolate each.

    They'll eat the 2 bunnies (120g each) and the bilby (20g)... over this week- so 260g each over a week.

    Leaving 2 med eggs each which we will make into brownies and choc chips.

    The amount of chocolate my DD (4.5yrs) got was absolutely ridiculous.
    We told family no presents and no chocolate as they always go overboard and we were doing a Easter egg hunt at home when they all came over for lunch and that will be plenty. But of course no one listened.

    So this is what she got :


    From us/Easter bunny
    Pj's, dressing gown and one small bunny with some Easter craft stuff

    MIL/FIL
    Some craft stuff plus a bag of chocolate with little eggs, medium bunny and medium eggs

    SIL/BIL
    A bunny ("but its only small" they said as they gave it to her knowing we said NO to presents)

    Gran in law
    A bunny and basket of small eggs

    Gran
    A big egg

    And then in the Easter egg hunt we organised 4 of the Cadbury hollow eggs and 4 of the mini Cadbury eggs

    Now for the other side of the family we saw at dinner ,They asked if they could do a Easter egg hunt. My DD is the only child on this side we said that's fine but just only a couple of smells eggs was plenty. Instead she got 1 big bunny, 1 small bunny and about 20 small hollow hunting eggs and 2 big eggs.

    So much chocolate!! I'm not going to let her way all of it but it's not fair that we have to be the bad guys and take some of it away or feel like we can spoil her ourselves because we know that everyone else in the family goes overboard.

    Sorry for the rant, it's just so frustrating!
