Happy April Fool's Day

My darlings, you planning any funny pranks for April Fool's Day? When we were little, we would replace the sugar with salt, so my parents would put it in their coffee by accident. We thought it was endlessly hilarious. Also, happy birthday, Dad! Thanks for pretending to be shocked by salty coffee for five years in a row.

Hope you're feeling great this morning, mama!

Lillian Chang said...

Happy birthday to Papa Goddard!! :)

Melissa Blake said...

G-Zell said...

Aww how sweet! Salty coffee , good one girl! LOVE it!

Giovanna said...

Aw, that's such a great picture of you and your dad!

hopeyt said...

Yep. I think I may have had salty coffee this morning too, but mostly because I am just too tired....
Sweet post!

i used to tie a rubber band to the spray hose on the kitchen sink so that when my mom would turn on the faucet, she'd get sprayed.

i was so naughty.

I did not realize it was April Fools Day until you mentioned it.

Thanks for the heads up!

Hollie said...

aww, I love today. I told my boyfriend we were pregnant on april fools.. haha, but I wasn't joking!

Joanna Goddard said...

hollie, that is SO sweet!!!

Alyssa said...

Very cute. I'm planning my first prank on my unsuspecting almost-3-year-old year old - half a glass of frozen milk with liquid milk on top. He'll drink what he can and get confused about the rest. I'm pretty sure he'll find it hilarious.

Will have to remember to watch my coffee when he gets old enough to reciprocate...

Hope Chella said...

That's so funny. I am not very good at fooling other people and am just hoping that I don't fall victim to anyone else's fooling!!!

Have a lovely Easter weekend and I always look forward to reading your blog :) xx

Awww Super cute!

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh my cuteness! I love the story and the adorable picture. You are going to have the cutest children.
I would wish you a Happy April Fool's Day, but that would just come out sounding sarcastic. So, have a great day!

We told our girls that they had to give back the guinea pig we bought for them yesterday because the thing had parasites! I could only pull it off for about three minutes until I saw that they were getting upset.

Happy April Fool's Day!! My daughters are trying to figure out the way to say something silly to their daddy working in NJ (we're in FL) - I hope he gets fooled!!


ali said...

my boyfriend told me that our weekend away in cornwall was cancelled due to the heavy rain that we have been having. not funny at all!

Aura said...

I never play pranks! I think it's terribly mean and I'd feel too guilty.

Fern and Feather said...

oh salt instead of sugar... good one. I think of a good April fools in July and then totally forget what it was by April 1.

Monica from Hola!design said...

Today I'm putting toothpaste inside of Oreo cookies and giving them to friends and coworkers! ha ha ha
have a great day, everybody!

One year I tied a rubber band around the kitchen sink sprayer so when someone turned it on it would soak you... My dad didn't think this was too funny when we got soaked two minutes before leaving for work.

The next year my brother put red food coloring in my moms shampoo... also a disaster

Gosh we were kind of horrible little kids hahah!

Corinna White Charlton said...

and today is my little brother's birthday! putting up with the "little fool" label for 22 years.... poor guy. my prank on my husband: telling him i'm pregnant! (its a little mean, but its also a blatant joke :) )

Giulia said...

Yep, the salt in the sugar bowl. Thought I'd grow up to be a comedian. I did move to Washington, DC (after France where I hung 'fishes' on people's backs - Poisson d'avril) & that qualifies me as an observational comedian. Have the same photo on wall, too (like someone above).

ciao, cara!

I used to put grass from the yard in my dad's Cherrios and I also found it endlessly hilarious. Like your Dad, he also pretended to be completely surprised every year! Ha. I can't wait to have kids to see what they do to me!!

Nora said...

I wish! But I can never beat last year, when I orchestrated an elaborate prank that convinced then-new boyfriend I got his name tattooed on my wrist -- as well as everyone who reads my blog. It was so, so, SO fun!

amynicole said...

Happy Birthday to your Father! Dad's are truly the greatest!

Bri (like the cheese) said...

My boss thought he was SO sneaking putting snap-pops under our office chairs. He didn't count on the nighttime cleaning crew cleaning up his 'mess' before anyone came in to work this morning. He was SO disappointed. I told him to April Fool-fire the cleaning crew!

Joanna Goddard said...

these are hilarious, i love them!

amber said...

Tee hee! Your dad sounds delightful. :)

Kiera said...

haha! that's funny!

you look like your dad! crazy!

Deanna said...

I had my baby today! Almost 3 weeks early! I called my parents at 4am to let them know my water broke, and they didn't believe me!

The Lil Bee said...

That is such a sweet story, Jo! I love that:)

Anonymous said...

Joanna, I hope you don't mind but in that photo your dad bears more than a passing resemblance to Alex your husband. Can you see it? X

Charlotta Ward said...

..salty or sweet - as long as it is coffee..! :)

A guy friend's b-day is on April 1st too, and we would always play Mr. T saying I pitty the fool over the phone to him. Still funny after all these years to know that he gets about 30 calls/messages like that on his day.

Oh, I sympathize. Omegle My husband and I were working for the same company Omegle Sohbet when I was pregnant, and I can't count how many times I hauled him out of his office out to the parking Omegle Chat lot so I could have a meltdown. (because of course I couldn't do it alone, I had to have a witness and then a hug after...)
I'd much rather have Omegle that than a huge diamond! So much classier. Graham Cluley, omegle a researcher at security firm Sophos, Görüntülü Chat told BBC News that Twitter needs "much tighter control" over what users can put in a tweet to prevent similar problems in the future.
