No School on April Fools!

My kids are off today because of conferences this week. Apparently putting together all those report cards and comments for each kid is a lot of work and the teachers need a 3 day weekend! Really? Because I'll pay you if they can go!

Grrrr, Great, thanks, I didn't need that!

I worry that I'm giving you the impression I don't love my kiddos. It's not like I'm losing sleep worrying over your thoughts about me, because I'm not! But I do tend to let my feelings known quite frequently, don't I? Seriously, how could you not love these two cuties!

It's just that I don't like them all the time! It's true! I'll be the first to admit that I will always love them but I don't always have to like them! As I type this there is currently a war escalating in the other room. This is going to be a long day isn't it?

So I woke up today at 6:30 being nailed in the face with a squirt gun. It is a good thing I didn't yell WTF because it was my son trying to play an April Fools joke on moi. My husband said that I should be grateful that was all he did because apparently he wanted to put my hand in a bowl of warm water and see if I would wet the bed! I'm pretty sure the reason my husband didn't let him go through with it was 1 of 2 things. The first being he didn't want to wake up with pee on himself because it is his bed too and second because ultimately he would have been blamed for knowing it was going to happen and then his head would have been bitten off!

Awe, thanks honey!

James then decided to carry on with his pranking and woke his sister up by dropping lime juice onto her lips while she was still asleep.

The poor thing, she cried her eyes out not knowing what just happened to her while he rolled on the floor in hysterics! What a Meany!

I, so wishing it wasn't morning yet proceed to walk into the bathroom to pee. Thank God I had my glasses on or I wouldn't have seen the second cruel joke that was being played on me. My wonderful son had put saran wrap over the toilet seat so when I peed it would run everywhere but in the bowl. Can you even imagine? I gotta hand it too him, that really was a good one! I haven't lead on that I actually was impressed because who knows when he will try it again. My luck is he will remove the light bulb next time so I can't see the seat and then the flood gates will be released! We all know who would be cleaning that mess up, don't we?

As I drug myself to the coffee pot I kept asking myself, "Self, why is it that when it is a school morning they are little shits to wake up but when there is a day off school they are up at the crack of dawn bouncing around the house and talking a mile a minute?"

Now that in itself is a cruel April Fools joke!

Hope you aren't only the prankee but the prankster!

Hi Megan! Thanks for dropping by my blog and liking it! You know it's every newbie's dream!

Too bad I didn't get a chance to do an April Fool's on hubby this year. Maybe I'll pull one tomorrow.

Hope you survive the day with minimal damage.

Following you back :) DWTSS

My kids have more days off than on it seems. I love them, too, but still want them to go away... most of the time :P Is that bad? Probably.
Hahahahah! the saran wrap trick! we did that to my dad once! he was a great sport about it... probably because he figured it out before he tried to use the toilet!
My kids are not very prankily creative... it's kind of a bummer for me 'cuz I thrive on the practical joke ;-)

I am a very, very poor sport so my family knows that it's the kiss of death to pull April Fool's jokes on me.

This makes me to happy my son is only 6 months old. My husband is such a sarcastic asshole though (said with love, of course), I can just imagine what they will have in store for me when he gets old enough to team up with him.

Hilarious blog! I will definitely be following. :)
