Happy April Fools!

Hehehe, I have one of those 9 year old boys who thinks he is the greatest April Fools pranksters ever. Hehehe. He just doesn't know about his old mom.

I usually wake up my kids (ages 9 and 8) at 7:00 to get ready for school, and we have to leave the house by 7:30 so I can get to work on time. Well, this morning, I woke up a few hours early and ran into their room, turned on the light, and started yelling, "Oh my gosh! We overslept! It is after 9:00 and you are late for school and I am late for work! Get up right now, get your shoes and backpacks and let's go!"


They fell for it hook, line, and sinker. They both scrambled out of bed, walked down the hall while rubbing their eyes, and put on their shoes. No one said a word, I guess it was too early for words. My son put on his backpack and for some reason, he stood by the front door with his shoes and backpack on and just stood there. Hehehe. My daughter was in the bathroom brushing her hair and trying to change her clothes. All the while, my son was still standing at the front door all ready to go - with his eyes closed! I couldn't help but crack up and yell, "April Fools!" hehe

Oh man, the looks those two gave me, I am still pulling the darts out of my head...but hey, it was funny. Hehehe. Happy April Fools to you!
