We went to the city hunt on Saturday morning and it turned out to be a complete mess. There were hundreds of kids all over the place. The fields were seperated into age groups and each person was only supposed to get 4 eggs. The parents were to stay on the sidelines and let the kids get their eggs by themself. When the bell sounded the kids and parents rushed out onto the fields. J got scared because of all the chaos. After a minute I finally went out to help her. She got one and almost a few more, but when she would bend down to pick one up, a PARENT would snatch it away from her. A PARENT, NOT A KID. I couldn't believe it. There were some kids who had 10-15 eggs in their basket and some like mine who had 1. T got 0, M got 1, J got 1, and somehow S actually got his limit of 4. It was upsetting to see these parents getting so aggressive with other kids. An event that is supposed to be fun for the kids ended up the complete opposite. We decided not ever to go again.
