Happy April Fools Day!

april fools dayHappy April Fool’s Day, everyone! I hope no one gets pranked too badly today.

I don’t have to worry about it because my  husband hates practical jokes. He things they are stupid, pointless, and can be dangerous. Sometimes he’s just no fun!

My daughter always calls or texts me on April Fool’s Day with some bit of news that’s supposed to freak me out. When she was a teenager she would tell me she was pregnant. Once, she told me she went out to get in her car to drive to work, and it had been totaled while parked overnight. It’s always some disaster that would (if it were true) worry a mother.

I’m ashamed to admit that I used to fall for these jokes, not realizing that it was April Fool’s Day. But I’m so used it now that I expect it, so I never freak out anymore. For her sake I always pretend to fall for it so she’s not disappointed.

Happy April Fool’s Day spankings!

Only if that’s what you want, of course! :)

  1. maybe mom’s can call it “thank goodness day”. My kids love those kind of jokes too. My son even had the “police station” call me. Grrrr

  2. Well sounds like that may be the perfect day for her to tell when when/if she ever is pregnant. At least that is how I would do it after such a lovely tradition. 😀
