April Fools from DW (Read 134 times)

    in the spirit of April fools day, I thought i would share some of our family shananigans with you. My wife and I are proud parents of three BOYS, ages 6,7, and 9. Last year, while they were all getting dressed for school DW convinced all three boys that it was National Underwear Awareness Day and that school sent home a memo saying to wear your clean underwear on the outside of the pants. Some documentation was provided to curb any hesitation. Pictures were taken and it was hilarious when she broke the news of April fools day. At the time they were 5,6, and 8 yrs old.

    .

     

    The past couple of birthday parties we have taken the boys to have had "cake pops" instead of birthday cake. These are small amounts of cake with icing on the end of a lolipop stick. This year DW made cake pops but instead of cake on the inside she put icing on mild shallots as an after school snack. Stay tuned.....

                thanks Happylily.

                 

                And yes they get their revenge on a  regular basis.

                 

                It worked well. The little one took a bite and didnt notice until the second bite. He siad "whats that smell?". The oldest figured it out on the first bite and remained quiet to see his brothers' reaction.
