April Fools!

We like to celebrate April Fool's Day at our house with gusto...although you'd think we'd have learned our lessons after last year's jokes came true for Team Eddy. To start our little ones off early, I enlisted Noah's help. I wrapped a rubber band around the sprayer on the kitchen sink so that when turned on, it would spray the unsuspecting victim.

Jen: (whisper) Noah, do you want to play a joke on your mom?
Noah: Oh, yeah! (giggling).
Jen: Ok. I want you to tell your mom you need a glass of water, okay? (He nods). (Loudly...) Noah, are you thirsty?
Noah: already have chocolate milk.
Jen: Noah, tell your mom you need some water!
Noah: I already have a drink!

Fortunately, Tancie was suddenly thirsty and Amy got sprayed as planned. It was funny. She definitely had it coming because this is the joke she played on Kevin later.

Tooo funny! I cracked up while watching it. I especially love the male voice in the background... um this is awkward and uncomfortable! LOL

I can't decide if that's really funny or really cruel....!

My husband would've FLIPPED OUT, and there would've had to have been bleeps in the editing.

I think it's hilarious that he actually checked the tip when you asked him if it was wet!
