April Fools. . . on me!

So my darling daughter thought that it would be funny to play a few practical jokes on some of our neighbors. (By the way, I have NO idea where she became aware that it is funny to do things to other people that live on our street. I have NEVER heard of such a thing!)

So she found a baby shower invitation and filled it out for some made up person and delivered it to Pam. She thought it was a delightfully funny joke. Then she gets this idea to cover herself in large, red dots as if she has some measles-like disease. Then she would run over to Cathy's house to expose all of her children to this disease, as seen here:





I thought it was a pretty standard April Fools Joke. Heck, I think I did something similar when I was that age. At any rate, all was well until the next morning when we were running late for school and realized that Addie was a spotted mess. So we rush through the shower, only to find out that the marker she picked out was not budging. It was a non-washable marker. So after convincing her that it would wear off (and trying to remove it with everything under the sink- including bleach and the magic eraser. . . I know, but she was fine) she was off to school.

The best part of my day was yet to come. Why you ask? Because at 10:30 my phone rang. It was Addison. Spring School pictures and whole class pictures were that day, unbeknown to me. Yup, I am NOT lying. What a GREAT day to take a picture. And yes, I will be buying the whole package, since it will come in handy later in her life, perhaps when she's dating. I will post the picture as soon as I get it.

I think this story needs to be sent into Readers Digest.

That is hilarious! I guess the joke was on Addison. You'll have to post that picture when you get it back. So funny!
