April Fool's Day
Andrew has caught the vision of April Fool's Day. Yesterday I woke up to a big, ugly, fake spider on my clock. I came downstairs and the beanbag was in the kitchen. He asked me to make him eggs for breakfast and when I opened the eggs I saw that he had replaced three of them with plastic easter eggs. Very clever. Now he needs to learn the art of surprise. He wanted to make sure he woke up before me, but he didn't know how to set his alarm so he had to ask me to do it. So I set it for him, amongst many questions of why in the world he wanted to get up that early when he didn't have school. I knew he was up to something, I just couldn't figure out what. I was impressed by the spider on my clock because I woke up when he got up. But I must have drifted off and he must have been super quiet because I didn't hear him put the spider on my clock! I'm sure his ideas will become much more elaborate the older he gets! I'm sure I'm in for it one of these years!
