April Fools!

Okay, so because a friend beat us to the punch on the moving out of country joke, Jake and I had to go with plan B, which we didn't want to sound too serious since it would involve a medical condition with our daughter. I tried to seem nonchalant about it so it could possibly sound real and go in one ear and out the other with just a head nod and a hmmmm. We tried to get the grandmas on it. I couldn't stop giggling when I wrote that the eyes had been switched. Jake came up with that. Not bad. Not like his other April Fool joke.
I just tricked Jake a couple of times this morning with the bathroom drawer contents switched around to confuse him and, my favorite, hiding his socks and replacing them with one pair of my rainbow socks. I had a pretty good laugh when he walked in for breakfast wearing them with his work clothes. I gave him back his black socks. But then, when Tessa and I had to leave for the Tiny Tots Tunes class, we went out to the car (in a hurry like always) to see the driver's side filled with camping gear, the seat pushed up all the way, the window rolled down, and the head pad thing taken off and shoved into the steering wheel. I wasn't impressed. I called him and tried to ruin the fun of his joke. I think I only half succeeded by telling him that it was not a good April Fools joke --it was pure vandalism. Next year I won't be returning the work socks.
Anyway, you'll have to let me know if you pulled any good jokes, or if anyone pulled a good joke on you --not just vandalized your car. :)
Tessa really does have a doctor's appt. tomorrow, so I'll give the stats on that later.

Well don't I feel like a fool!! ;) I'm so silly because I was trying to think of an April Fools joke to post yet didn't even think of that as a possibility when I read your blog!

That is really funny!!! I would never be able to think of something like that- very creative! I tried to get Bryan by salting his toothbrush but I busted out laughing before I could play along with it. I'm not a very good jokester!

I always leave myself about 30 seconds or less driving time -- I would have flipped out with that joke! Where is your Tiny Tots Tunes class? That sounds so cute!!

Very creative! How do you come up with these ideas? I can't get through a joke without busting up. For our April Fools day, we had a trip to the Dentist. A very expensive trip. When they gave us the bill, I was hoping they'd say April Fools, this is before insurance, but no.

Aren't you tricky?! As I was laying in bed on the first, I was thinking about you guys and wondering how you would teach her to read when she got older. Definitely glad to hear it was all a joke!
