I used to hate this holiday. A day where people are supposed to lie to each other??? Stupid. Mean. dorky.....
Then Beautiful Rabbit cured me. She loves tricking her mommy and daddy. She's always sneaking downstairs and "throwing" her voice to trick us into thinking she's on the stairs. I finally got to trick her today!
When Rabbit came home from school, I told her she had to clean her room all the way before she could have her snack. (She's always starving when she got home from school.) I was afraid she'd try to talk me out of it. Sometimes we play a game where I ask her to do something that's completely unreasonable just so she can practice not crying and asking to change it to something more reasonable. That's really hard to remember when you're starving, though. So she stomped up to her room.......only to find that Mom, Bear, and Finch had cleaned it completely and unpacked the left over boxes.
She came right down the stairs and told me that Delightful Finch went straight to sleep for her nap....she tricked me! She's much better at tricking people than I am ;)
