The children all had fun playing tricks on each other. However, this year's best prank award goes to Dad!
It begins like this. I yell from upstairs to the children who are downstairs, "Kids, I need daddy to come help me. I think he's in the den. Can someone get him for me?" Instantly, all the children obediently run into the den to relay the message to dad. (okay, so maybe it doesn't quite go down like that, but a mom can dream, right?!) When someone arrives at the den, this is what they see.
|Hey dad, mom needs some help upstairs.|
|Hmmmm...something's not right here! I think that dad just pranked the kids!|
Ahhhh....it felt so good to have a day of fun and laughter. After a week of sadness and tears, April Fool's Day was just what our house needed.
