This morning Cale woke up very excited since it was April Fools Day. The day has never been one our family has done much with, but last year he had a teacher who went all out for the day and that made quite the impression on him. I could tell by the twinkle in his eye, that he wanted to pull some jokes over on mom.
Cale has always been a bit of a perfectionist and won't do things for the "public eye" to see unless they are just right, so I could tell some of the morning was spent rehearsing what joke he was going to pull on me.
Finally he walked over to me with a smirk on his face and said "Mom, I am going to tell you an April Fools Day joke". "Ok", I said. "What is it?". He then declared that his sister had spilled milk all over the table and floor... APRIL FOOLS! The morning continued on with the same types of jokes from him, and he sure was proud that he could pull off some April Fools Day jokes. I just loved how he had to warn me before he tried to pull on over on me. I am sure with time he will learn that isn't such a good idea if you want to fool people, but for now it works just fine.
