Many times, Chickie has watched an episode of Caillou that's about April Fool's. So she "gets it." I told her it was April Fool's yesterday, and we had fun with it.
I told her it was snowing outside, and when she went to the window..."April Fool's!" I remember my mom playing that same April Fool's joke on me when I was small, and I still remember how very disappointed I was not to see snow on the ground! Thankfully Chickie giggled and took it in stride.
She told me the doorknob had come off the door. I told her there was a big spider on the floor. (It was really the dog's rope toy.) A few minutes later, she told me there was a spider on the floor. It didn't fool me, but in her 4-year-old mind it's all about being funny, not necessarily about really "pulling one over" on someone.
Ro*Tel posted a photo on Twitter of the new product they're launching: Diced Beets & Green Chilies. Check out the funny picture here.
Google named itself "Topeka" for the day...after Topeka, KS recently (in a bid to get some Google business to their city) renamed itself "Google." Read about it here.
And then, of course, there was my afternoon blog post yesterday....
What fun April Fool's jokes did you see, hear, or create?
