Emmy was a little bit confused about the whole concept of April Fool's Day. When she saw the girls plotting, she kept asking us things like, "I know! I can be a witch!" or "Maybe I should be a chef!" It was a little bit April Fools mixed with a touch of Halloween.
For dinner, we had mashed potatoes and gravy (vanilla ice cream and caramel), chicken nuggets (sugared donut holes), and mixed corn, peas, and carrots (green, orange, and corn sixlets). And for dessert? Vegetable pizza.
It's funny. At the end of the day I was thinking how April Fools provides an opportunity, once a year, to create a little chaos.
At our house? We embrace chaos. Go ahead- turn our lives upside down for a day.
We'll feel right at home.
