Ways to APRIL FOOL your Family!

Today’s a perfect day for a little fun retribution!!  Here are some ideas from our SMKR Community Page:

  • I’ve made my kids breakfast cereal for the morning already, that’s because it’s now in the freezer, complete with milk and spoon, that way when they go to pick up the spoon to eat in the morning the whole bowl will lift up! – Glenda
  • Instead of carmel apples… make carmel onions! Dad did that to me in High School…. ICK! – Tricia
  • I made a meatloaf and mashed potato “cake” about 7 years ago when my kids where younger….they didn’t think it was funny when they thought they were getting cake for dinner.  – Veronica
  • I like to wake the kids up and tell them there is a foot of snow outside and school is cancelled…April Fools! – Nancy
  • I once took some store bought powdered donuts, wiped the powdered sugar off & rolled them in a flour & salt mixture. What was really disturbing was that my husband ate TWO before he figured it out! – Mary

    I can’t get to facebook from work but I wanted to share my best jokes as a teenager and then one as a mom/wife.
    1st: I was 17 and had been dating my boyfriend for about a year. I went and bought myself a ring. He and I left for the day and came back to my house later that day. We walked outside to my parents (of which my mother was totally in on it) and said “Dad?” “Yes sweetie” and showed him the ring. He had a rake in his hand and I half expected him to hit Keith with it. He just backed up laughing nervously. I couldn’t leave him hanging so I quickly said, April FOOLS! Shit my kids ruined that day: My dads heart. I don’t think he was ever the same after that.
    2: My third and pregnancy. I was bigger this time around earlier in the pregnancy because of being able to control my morning sickness better. So naturally everyone teased me about having twins. I knew I wasn’t. But none the less… I printed off an ultrasound of twins and blacked out the name of whoever’s it was. April 1st just so happened to fall on a day I was going to the doctor so when I came home from work that day after the appt, I pulled the official looking ultrasound out and showed him. He says “What’s this?” “Well honey, here’s the head. And here’s the other head. There’s two of them” He laughed. I REALLY thought he realized I was joking and I didn’t get him. We went inside and I sat down on the couch. He backed up against the front door and stared me down. I thought oh wait he doesn’t know. He proceeded to freak the eff out. So I had to tell him pretty quickly it was a joke so he didn’t keel over. I haven’t tried to get either my husband or my dad since those pranks because I just don’t think I have the heart to get them like that again.

    Wake the kids for school an hour early, Get them dressed, get them breakfast, RUSH them out the door to the bus… Wait 15 to 20 minutes then pull them back in and say APRIL FOOLS! (better if it is on a weekend!)

    When I was 16 my Mom told me that Johnny Depp had committed suicide and left his fame and fortune to The Republican Party. I actually went to school and told all of my friends. When I got home my Mom had left a note on the bathroom mirror saying ‘April Fools! Johnny isn’t dead and the Republicans didn’t get a dime!’

    I was LIVID.
