7:05 this morning
Charlie: Mom, Mom! It's already 7:35 -- you're really late!!
Charlie: April Fools!
Here we go...
My son discovered last year that this is possibly his favorite day all year. I know we raised him with a sense of humor, but this kid is taking it in a whole new direction. Already he's being labeled the "class clown," which I fear is only going to lead to more trouble. Hopefully today the teacher will be a little lenient when he chooses to use some of his April Fools ideas. As long as she can handle being told there's a spider in her hair, she can survive just about anything!
I'd love to come up with something clever to pull on the kids this evening, but it has to be something that will make them laugh, not cry. Somehow I don't think, "We're having chocolate cake for dinner!" would be fair.
Does anyone out there have anything clever to share that would bring laughs all around? Our family could use one this year.
Happy April First!
