April Fool’s Day.
Doesn’t it just slip right in and surprise you?
Or maybe you plan for this day and all the tricks you will pull. Like you are twelve…
This day comes with notice at our house.
And with a seven-year-old and almost ten-year-old, there are lots and lots of fooling.
All the F’s & N’s in class today. I choked on my STARR test. I got sent to the principles office. Oh look! I broke my foot! Yep. Right this second. My foot…..it just broke.
Ahhh, the joys of older (but still little foolers).
I decided to pay them back this year!
The salt and pepper shakers magically changed colors.
The milk spoiled blue.
The trick is not to notice anything different. The milk is white. The salt is white and pepper is black.
You crazy kids! You don’t know what you are talking about.
Of course, the littlest one ate it up. She really believed we couldn’t see the colors and she was just dumbfounded. Showing us the milk and the shakers. Asking us what color they are.
It was AWESOME!
Then, big sis said, “It’s just food coloring, Bridget.”
Just food coloring…
Well, it’s FUN food coloring if you ask me. And maybe they weren’t the biggest pranks of the year. But honestly, it was all I could manage on my lunch hour.
Hope your April Fools was just as fun (and pink and blue sparkly).
