Oldest daughter has been way excited for this day to come. Because, hello, April Fool's Day! A holiday made especially for children. It's an excuse to be silly. To pull one over on your parents.
I believe this is the first year that it has meant anything to our little brood. And that's because we finally have a daughter out "in the world" who learns stuff and comes home and teaches us all the stuff she learns. Hence, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, St. Patrick's Day, and Groundhog Day have become holidays of note in our household.
Thank you, oldest daughter!
She has been excited all week about what promises to be a super fun, prank-pulling day. And she has told us that she has some doozies for us- so we should be ready.
Well, I am here to tell you, she was not fooling! She got us good!
First thing when she woke up this morning, she told me, "Mom, you have a moth behind you!" I turned around and guess what? No moth.
And later, she tricked us with the old "Dad, you have something on your forehead!" Again- not a thing on the forehead! What a joker.
Middle daughter was intoxicated with all the hilarity and she soon got in on the action. She pulled a couple silly jokes on us and when we fell for those jokes, she exclaimed, "Foolin' ya!"
Foolin' ya. Can you coin a cuter phrase for this day than Foolin' ya?
Didn't think so.
