I love how you captured this! Tag you're it!

This is a total scream, Tami...who says sweet, loving Mom's can't show their fangs to their pups sometimes...keeps 'em honest...<img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/wink.gif'>

Oh Tami! I can't believe you played that trick on him! I would have never thought of anything like that. You definitely captured his reaction to it though. Funny how he wants to play it on his cousin now.

Oh dear! I almost feel bad for laughing at the little guy. That worm does look pretty realistic, I might have had the same face. Great LO, and you must have had that camera all primed for action cuz you really captured the moment. I love that despite his first reaction that he wanted to try it out on his cousins. I really like the sweeping geometric like shape in behind the pics, its really carries your eye through the LO. Love how you've used lots of neutral colors and then the apple and the red title really pop.

Oh Tami, I am still not recovered from last year's gag! Someday he will thank you for teaching him the best April Fool's jokes, but I dunno, he doesn't look too happy! He's a good sport, that Oliver.

Journaling: Just in the last day or so you dug into the box of old Halloween candy and found the old, brown, gummy earthworm. As I told you to put it back, I already had my idea for this April Fool’s Day. Armed with a screwdriver and corkscrew, I went to work digging through a delicious apple. The earthworm was hardened and crusty, so I softened him up in the microwave, then proceeded to shove him into the two cozy tunnels until he was entirely encased and hidden. After dinner, I asked you if you wanted an apple for a snack. You asked could you eat it whole? I said sure thing…You took 2 big bites before the brown of the worm started to appear. You had NO clue what was going on and I could tell it wasn’t going to work quite as planned. So, I took the apple and said, “Hmmm, what’s this?” You looked just in time to see me yank out the bloated half of earthworm. I said “Oh, gross! You just ate a worm!” It took a few seconds for this to register, and I threw the worm at you for good measure. At that point you totally lost control and your mouth contorted in fright at the thought of having had eaten a worm. Your face turned a cool shade of blue and we managed to calm you before you passed out. After you stopped crying, you told me how scary that was, but that you couldn’t wait to perform the same trick on your cousin. Score 1 for Mom.

A little frightening, i know. This is the kind of family i came from and the kind we will be, too. Really…I AM a good Mom!
