I, I Went Off to the Right

"Why's the sky red today?"

"April fo-oo-ooo-oo-ols!"

"Why's a cow on the roof? April fools!"

"Why's an elephant in the road? April fools!"

"Hey, boys, guess what? You're gonna have a baby sister!"

"Really? Awesome!"

"Yay! A baby sister!"

"APRIL FOOLS!"

"What?"

"Huh?"

"You mean we're not gonna have a baby sister?"

::sobbing:: "You're the meanest mommy ever!"

Funny, but mean, but funny. :)

Is it bad that I find this incredibly funny and wished that I had thought of doing the same thing?

Pat said...

Funny, and they will remember when they are adults that their mommy was funny.

Wow, I can't believe
April Fool's came and went with no conversation with the kid about it.

That was a good one on your part.

My 10 year old told me (on April 1st) that when she was in her 20s, she was going to actually be pregnant in April, so that she could tell us she's pregnant on April 1st and then we'll think that she isn't because it would be a joke and then she really will be.

I told her she'd better work on the timing.
