No kidding- this year my daughter got me where it hurts....

My FO prayer shawl has been hanging in a bag on my baker's rack waiting for my husband to deliver it to his mom when he goes down there in a couple of weeks.

This morning, my daughter (she is 12) came out of my son's room (he's 5 and a red headed mischevious terror) and asked me if I knew where the shawl was. I told her I did, and where it was, and she just shook her head. I looked- the bag wasn't there. She told me that Declan (said 5 yr old terror) had apparently cut it and unraveled it all over his bedroom. (which is SO something he would do- he cut a chunk out of my hip length hair while I was washing the dishes once, and also cut my favorite skirt WHILE I WAS WEARING IT- again while I was washing dishes. Maybe I should get a dishwasher.)

Of course everything was fine, and she laughed and laughed. She really had me worried for a minute there!

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS, AND DON'T MESS WITH MY KNITTING!

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Here at Dental Help.com no one likes to play jokes.

Oh my GOSH! You must have a strong heart. I believe I would've collapsed on the spot.
But I guess you've had some endurance training from the previous episodes....

Yes, endurance training at it's finest.

Although sometimes you will find me in the corner curled into a fetal position, rocking myself and muttering "This too shall pass..."

If the child wasn't an absolute JOY to be around (he really is a happy spirit, not mean at all just curious) I would have sold him back to the gypsies by now.

And isn't everyone glad we can also get dental help here too? LMAO @ the April Fools page!

This morning I got my dh. Told him just after he had gotten out of and just wake enough, I had broken my computer! I said it with a tear in my eye that always work.
That my computer died and I didn't know what I had done. He turned looked at me with his head down do you know what you did to it? Nope I said I was so sorry and could he some how fix it. As he went to look I said April Fool dear. He laughed and now I am on the look out for him to get me.
I just love April Fools day. It was my dad's birthday and he loved getting all of his kids on Fools day.
