April Fool's Day

When I was a kid, and even as a teenager, my mom just about always played an April Fool's prank on me. Usually just after I'd gotten up and was still a little sleep-fuzzy. Harmless little "how'd you rip your pajamas" or something along those lines. Something she knew would make me look.

Now that I live 2,000 miles away from her, small things like that pop into my memory on days like today. My mom's sense of humor is a little more understated than my dad's was, but in her own way she's just as ornery. LOL

What about you? What kinds of April Fool's memories do you have?

The same one actually :) When I used to come into my parents' bedroom, she used to say exactly that! Or that there was a small spider on my head (not a big one, I would have cried if she had just said 'spider'). Only the difference is is that my mum's a few feet down from me, making us some teas :)

Further, I've been pranked today actually :P You might have seen that :P

I did see that! :)

My mom's coming for a visit and will be here on Mother's Day. I'm looking forward to that!

My mom did those gentle April Fools jokes too. :) My younger brothers, on the other hand, not so gentle! lol

I hope you enjoy your time with your mom. :)

Colleen, I don't remember my siblings pulling any pranks on me. That's not to say they didn't, but I just don't remember. So they must not have been too bad... ;)
