April First...

Every year I play a practical joke on my children that they fall for,...well, two out of three for the most part anyway. For the last ten years since they have been married, it has been that one or the other is pregnant. They are always amazed and then "April Fools". They were getting wise there for a while but since they have been having babies the last couple of years, it was more believable. I've always called first thing in the morning before they realized it was April first, thinking that worked well. This year, Larry helped and we waited till night and called each of them...to Tim ...it was Chelsea. He said "Great!, is she happy about this??" And we said, "yes, it's nice they'll be close,...etc" To Chels, we said Tim...and she was so sweetly excited for them! And then called Mike and told him it was Tim, too. Mike was so happy for them...then we drop the bomb..."April Fools!!" The response was almost exactly the same for each too....unrepeatable!!! hahaha! Sooo funny! Until....next year! You are so much fun, my children!!!!!

Ya Ya, you are just too funny:)
Donna, since your kids fall for this EVERY year, have you questioned their intelligence? As Rick would say, "Mediocre at best!"
Just kidding.
