April Fool's!

We love April Fool's Day around here.  Usually Will and I spend weeks thinking of the best pranks to play on Daddy.  One year we replaced his hair gel with lime jello (he didn't notice); another, we parked his car around the corner so he would think it was stolen (this one he did notice).

But, since Roger's currently in Canada, we can't play jokes on him, so the poor, unsuspecting kids bore the brunt of my April Fool's humor.

This was their breakfast today:

Looks perfectly normal, right?

Well, it's not.  The milk is actually gelatin and the cereal?  Frozen!   With the spoon right in...

The kids were so confused.  Poor Kate said, "There's something wrong with my milk.  I think you put egg in it instead."

After Will tried to eat his cereal and the whole bowl came up when he lifted the spoon, he clued in:  "Wait a minute, what day is it?  AWWW, MOM!!"


I crack myself up....
