OUR FIRST ULTRASOUND
Most of you probably don't know (including my husband), that we're expecting twins! This is a picture from our 15 week ultrasound. I can't wait to have 4 kids under the age of 4. It's going to be sooooooooooooo awesome.
Just kidding, April Fools! Oh, ha ha ha. Whoa, I'm so funny.
I love April Fools day. I love playing tricks on people, but I hate having a trick played on me. (Yes, I am one of those people.)
When I was in 3rd grade I showed up at school with crutches because my "ankle was sprained." My teacher looked me in the eye and said, "Cristin, is this a joke? It's April Fool's Day. Be serious." I said, "No. This is not a joke." I had to sit out of recess and P.E.., plus someone got assigned to carry my stuff for me everywhere. At the end of the day I threw the crutches on the ground and walked out of class. Ha ha, April Fools on them.
A little over a year into our marriage we told Erik's mom and sister, Ditte, that I was pregnant. The best part of this joke was that Ditte called and left a message on our phone asking to know all "the details." We laughed about that forever. What exactly did she mean by "the details"?
On Sunday, Erik lost his phone after church. He dropped us off at home and then ran back to the church to look for it. I found his phone on Luke's bed and couldn't decide whether or not to call Erik (he had my phone) using the "Beeker from the Muppets" voice or "Mr. T" voice. I went with Mr. T. I said, "Um, hello, I found this cell phone." Erik said, "Yes, are you at the LDS church?" He thought I was someone else. (Mr. T, perhaps?) I laughed so hard about that one.
So, today is the holiday for practical jokes and I can't think of any good ones to play on Erik. Everything that comes to mind is far too mean.
"I'm divorcing you!"
"Your mom died!"
"The doctor called. You have cancer."
"I gave away everything that was in our savings account to my sister."
"I'm pregnant with someone else's baby."
In my ultimate April Fools Day world I would say one of these phrases and then wait a day to reveal that it was all a joke. You can see why I can't do this with any of my ideas. It would be bad, really bad. If only I could come up with something that was a happy medium.
