It's April Fool's Day!!

Stumble Upon Toolbar

I feel an obligation, as a mother, to warn all fellow mothers that today is the highlight of the year for sneaky children everywhere.

If your children are as sly as mine, RUN, don't walk to this list of precautions from Deputy Headmistress. It is too late for me, but you may be able to save yourselves.

I would like to add to her list the following precautions:

  • Check all chairs carefully before sitting.
  • Check all doorknobs before opening.
  • Look up before flinging a door open. Trust me. This one is imperative!
  • Don't drink anything offered to you by a smiling son.
  • Don't let your children see the list I linked to above!
  • Some pranks may be pulled several times today! Keep your guard up!
Consider yourself warned.

The sneakiest 'child' at our house is me.
My eldest complained one year that she does not remember me giving her all these awesome April 1 tricks to play when she was a child.

I looked at her. You know. THAT look. And I said, "Right. Because when you were little, who were you going to play those tricks on? ME! But now your younger siblings can play them on you, and so it's twice as much fun for me!"

She says she is going to go stay at a hotel every March 31 from now on.

Too funny!

I often don't know what day of the week it is, much less the date.
Hubby calls me from work to give me a phone number to call about an insurance quote. He said I need to ask for Harry Lyons. I call and due to my noisy munchkins in the background, I don't catch the name of the company when a lady answers, but I go ahead and ask for Harry. She says, "Um, there's no one here by the name of Harry."
OK...I call hubby back to re-check the number and dial again. This time I hear "Los Angeles Zoo" loud and clear. Huh?
I STILL don't "get it"!
I call hubby back to inform him that is not the number to the insurance agency, it's the LA Zoo. After a not-so-well-suppressed chortle he wonders, "Did you ask for Harry Lyons?"

Thanks for the payback ideas!
