Fool Me Once…
It’s official: April Fool’s Day + Kids = Awesome.
This parental equation became truth today, especially (and a bit ironically) since my kids are now pretty good at lying to me. We call it “telling stories.”
Here are a few gems from today, all of which made me chuckle:
“Mommy, Daddy, your wedding picture fell off the wall!”
“Daddy, there’s a nightmare in our room!”
“We pushed each other off the bed!”
“There’s red ants on the bed!”
“My sister hit me!”
“My chapter book has food in it!”
and the coup de grâce
“Daddy, I don’t want to go to ballet class any more.”
…that last one… it got me. Next year, I’ve got to up. My. Game.
