Any April Fools hi jinks in your houses today? April Fools gets a lot more fun when you have big kids in the house. Today we have had:
-- hard boiled eggs for breakfast (they were filled with confetti--and then kids had lots of fun breaking them over their heads)

-- saran wrap on the toilet (though, the joke is on me because guess who is going to clean it all up?)

--dollar bills wrapped in the toilet paper

-- the mandatory "Guess what? There is no school today" bit

--food coloring in the bottom of the cereal bowl, then cereal. When they poured milk on it all of the milk turned a different color (one child was convinced it would give him super powers....)

--A tall glass of icy diet coke that was really filled with mostly prune juice (I just wanted to see who was sneaking sips, and it was exactly who I thought it was) When I asked him if it tasted weird he told me that it was the most delicious Diet Coke he has ever had (note to self: remove the saran wrap before the prune juice kicks in)

--Mashed potato ice cream cones are on the agenda for after school (you can freeze the scoops of potato in the cone and put magic shell on them, for extra evil) as well as snow cones with salt (it is warm here today).

I might think of a few more, but so far this day has been successful. The one kid who has been the most and easily fooled has been the most fun to watch. Coincidentally, he is the one that gives me the most grief.

Revenge really is a dish that is best served cold (with Magic Shell).

How do you fill the eggs with confetti?

I bought them at walmart that way, but you can cut off the bottom and fill, then cover with white tissue paper and dye. I don't DO crafts very well. I'll buy them though!!

You have a blog that I didn't know about? Glad I found it!

Sounds like you guys got into the spirit of April Fools. Poor Karina told me today, "Mom, you take all the fun out of April Fool's!" Uh, thanks?

Being mean to small children is really fun, huh? Since we can't abuse them we might as well mess with their minds!
