Ok this isn’t my typical post, but if you have spent any time with me at all you’d know I’m quite the joker. As my mother tells me I really do have a junior high sense of humor. One year (I was probably in the 6th grade) I covered the toilet in our house with clear Karo corn syurp. My mom sat in it and got her butt stuck to the toilet…or at least she played along that she did!
I remember fondly her voice yelling, “APRIL…!!!” That was a great day.
So when my girls, in typical Eichhorn fashion (my dad and his brothers are quite the pranksters too), were on YouTube they came across this ‘fake poop’ video and we were all laughing hysterically. But I would have never guessed what would happen next.
I left last evening to take a quick ride up to the airport to pick my mother up from her trip out to visit my sister in CA and upon my return I was being videoed by my middle daughter Molly. Strange.
Then in the words of Clement Moore in his famous poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’,
When what to my gleaming eyes should appear,
but poops lying ’round the house oh so clear!
The funny part of it was when I threw one in the garbage and Monty, our dog, came right up and ate it out! With April Fool’s Day right around the corner you might want to whip up a batch and trick your kids…
Here are a few very appropriate ideas:
1) Put a poop in their lunch box in a Ziploc bag
2) Leave one lying on their bathroom floor next to the toilet and act surprised (maybe even blame them)
3) Freak out your spouse by leaving one on the toilet seat and act horrified (blame him)!
Why blame them? It just adds to the fun and makes it seem that you are not a part of the disgusting scene…until you bust out laughing!
Here is the video with a simple recipe. Enjoy!
What are the best memories you have of April Fool’s Day? What are your best pranks?
Share them below and we can all try them out for some super family fun. One lucky mom will win an e-copy of Ride the Wave: Journey to Peaceful Living. That is no joke…
