So, the other night...we had nachos for dinner. I made them a bit spicey, so I was not surprised when Nicki, (*my 11 year old*), complained that her tummy was hurting.
I told her to go to the bathroom and get me the tums.
She brought them out, and I gave her one and said it should help her feel better. Soon, I saw Joe, (*my 9 year old*), eyeing the Tums and Nicki with a very giggly face.
I see him whisper something to Nicki, and it was then I realized what he asked her...
Totally Cracked Me UP!!
Also...a bit more laughter in the house today. Of course it had to do with April 1st...what would April 1st be without a good joke or two?!
So, last night, Nicki had a 4-H meeting. While eating a donut or two, she put her retainer in her jacket pocket. On the way home, she realized she lost her retainer. In a state of panic, she starts to cry and Tony turns around and they went back to look for her retainer. They couldn't find it.
Later in the night, the lady where they had the meeting, called...She Found The Retainer! Woohoo!
I went to pick it up this morning.
With a little prank in mind, I made my way home. Whipped up a batch of chocolate, and mixed in some granola bar...and made a nice little cow pie. I topped it off with...you guessed it...Nicki's retainer!
When she came home from school, I told her they found her retainer. She was thrilled. Then I put the bag in front of her, and said, "The only problem is, it was in the manure." She wasn't too sure until she saw some grass embedded in her retainer.
Hoping that is the last time she loses her retainer! :)
Then, I took out some lovely Chocolate Covered SPONGE that Ryan and I made...Yummy! Gave one to each of the kids and gave them to the workers outside.
Definately made for another SUCCESSFUL April 1st.
Totally patting myself on the back here! Mom is GREAT!!!
Because it is Alphebe-Thursday..you should head on over to Jenny's site and see how much fun she is having over there! :)
