it was march 31, we were consumed with the news of the neighborhood, and i remembered naomi’s question from earlier in the day: so, tomorrow’s april fool’s day and i hate to set myself up, so you don’t have to do anything, but if you’re not going to, could you tell me now?
so, with a conflicted heart, i went to the kitchen late at night and “made some juice for breakfast.”
jello in a cup with a straw. sneaky.

then i turned our after school snack silly.
want some french fries?
oh, they don’t look cooked well enough?
well, that’s because they are apples peeled and cut to look like french fries and caramel dyed red.
it was good to see delight. and truly trick my kids.
