April Fool's!

My girls have been talking about April Fool's Day for a month so I knew something had to be done to get the day going!  I started the night before by freezing water in the bottom of their cereal bowls, adding just a thin layer of milk and cereal on top that morning.
Julia growled at me. She's not a morning person.
I also made sure to prep some kool-aid (jello w/a straw) ready for them to drink. This made Audrey cry.  "I'm so thirsty. I was so thirsty last night. And now I'm thirsty again, and there's nothing to drink!"

I'm such a great mom. I prank my kids into crying before it even hits 7am. 
Audrey did (eventually) chill out and eat her jello!
I also safety pinned all their panties together so that when they changed clothes, one long strand came out of their drawers. They both thought this was hilarious, but for obvious reasons there are no pictures of the scene. I highly recommend this prank for little ones.

After school I told them I'd made them "brownies" and had them sit on the couch. I then brought the girls the "brown  Ee's" I'd made and waited for their reactions.

Julia figured it out immediately, growled at me again, and tore up her paper.
 When Audrey figured out what the brown Ee's meant, she threw herself on the couch... again, crying. I'm such a loving mother. I think I deserve Mom of the Year.
Don't feel sorry for them. I did pull out real brownies for them to snack on before too long.

We pranked Matt by taping a "honk at me" sign on his car and pouring some salt on his toothbrush. They got me by putting shaving cream under my car door handles. Not a bad day, if I do say so myself.


  1. I need me some Easter Sunday pix!

    1. Your need cannot be met. No pictures were taken. I'm sure you'll be glad to know Matt and I made sure to wear our best jeans. :)
