April Fool's Day

Well it's April Fool's day, and while I loved it as a kid I haven't had a chance to play pranks in years due to a lack of willing participants. I was hoping my 6 year old would be ready this year...but least not at 6am. The plan was simple, breakfast I gave him a fork instead of a spoon to eat his cereal, but in his groggy haze of forced awakening he was....not amused, nah that's too nice, he was angry. He stomped off back to bed and dug in under his blankets.

"MOM! You gave me a fork!"
"Ha ha April Fool's!"
"Ugh I hate April Fool's! I am not celebrating"...stomp stomp stomp
  He did come back out and finish breakfast with a spoon.

Needless to say my next prank is being put away until next year. I wanted to bento last night's dinner...which he wouldn't even try, and show it to him as his lunch today. Then after the drama sure to ensue I'd show him the real one....but one tantrum is enough for any morning so I kept that to myself. ;)

I hope all of you had more fun today! He did warm up and attempt to tell jokes at school but his stand-up routine isn't very polished yet.

Doctor Who Premier - The Bells of St. John
We had a great time watching it yesterday as a family so I made a quick version this morning. 

In this lunch :
  • Wifi cloud of alphabet pretzels
  • The Doctor uploading (Blue streaming data) with red fez and bowtie peanut butter and jelly
  • Cucumber slices with Wifi cut out of the middles
  • Grapes

Walking Dead Season Finale - Zombie Braaains 
(Mommy lunch - Kids do NOT watch this show)

In this lunch :
  • Brain matter - Leftover spaghetti squash mixed with a little red food coloring, I should have gone darker but wanted to taste the squash.
  • Walker - Provolone cheese
  • Clementine orange
  • Leftover broccoli steamed with provolone scraps from the food art
Such a fun weekend for Geek TV. Got to welcome back Doctor Who and Game of Thrones, and say good-bye to The Walking Dead until next season. How did you spend Easter? :) Oh right Easter! Yes we did that too! I'll post that separately though, stay tuned! I promise it was totally G-rated.


  1. Awesome wifi cloud!! And super scary zombie!! Sorry your prank didn't go over well :D I'm not big on pranks myself!

    1. Thanks! I like pranking not being pranked lol and nothing is really funny at 6am so I probably shouldn't have, but I thought a mild prank would be ok.
