Joke's on me

So LMNOB and Punkinhead had a grand ole time with April Fool's Day yesterday.

"Mommy, there's a spider on your head" only flies, uhm, once tops, but none-ce for this mama.

"Oh, wow, look at that ________" followed by fingerpointing did get my eye a few times though.

What was funniest about this was that they would rapid-fire attempts to trick me, like the sheer volume would eventually overcome my wit. The irony was that it just made everything very cheeseball and unbelieveable.

Meanwhile time passed.

LMNOB and I watched American Idol while Charlie Brown and Punkinhead were in the garage doing boy stuff with the dirtbike.

LMNOB says, sheepishly, "Daddy's gonna buy us a boat ," to which my indignation flared.

"WHAT?!? When did he say this?"

"April Fool's!" gleefully escaped LMNOB's lips while her eyes taunted me:

"Haha, I got you for real!"

Little stinker o' mine, she is.
