I rocked April Fool's Day today. Rocked it.
When Ian came downstairs in the morning, I handed him his juice (in a cup with a straw) but HA! I had filled it with lemon jello the night before :) He thought it was pretty funny. After he figured out that it wasn't the straw that wasn't working...
Then I poured him his cereal. I had put a couple drops of blue food coloring in the bottom of the bowl, then poured cereal on top of it, so when I poured the milk on it in front of him, it magically turned blue!
Ian was so into April Fool's day. He soon figured out that he could pretend just about anything and make it funny by shouting, "April Fools!"
Ian! Get dressed! You are going to be late to school!
No, Mom! I'm not ever going to do that!! ...APRIL FOOLS!!!
He kept asking me if I had any more pranks to pull. I (of course) kept telling him that I was all done for the day. He and Chase went to school, and I proceeded to make a bunch of teeny tiny peas, carrots, corns, and potatoes out of Starbursts and Airheads. I mixed those with vanilla pudding, baked a pie crust to fit the pan, and laid it on top.
Then I had to wait for like 6 hours before I could serve my Chicken Not Pie for dinner. And I couldn't even Facebook about it, because I didn't want Bryan to find out. Torture.
Finally, dinner came around, and I had to make a big show of taking my pie out of the oven, pretending that it was hot, and dishing it up. I may have cracked a smile during this, and perhaps stifled a giggle, because Bryan became suspicious.
Chase just about cleaned his plate. Except he left his "veggies"- I think they were too chewy. Funny- he will eat real green beans and corn like they are going out of style, but he spits out Starbursts. I don't think I will ever figure out that boy of mine.
We had dessert next- wild rice and red beans :)
