It must be April Fool's Day. I had kids telling me there were spiders in my hair, they were going to Disneyland tomorrow, my shoe was untied, they were getting a new kitten, etc., all day long.
I didn't fall for Disneyland or the spiders, but they got me on all the rest. I am apparently so gullible even a kindergartner can fool me.
I didn't fool anyone. I didn't even try. I usually tease the kids continually so I figured they could use the day off. Hmmmm, come to think of it, maybe my straight-faced daily absurdities might be rubbing off on them. Maybe I'm not as easily fooled as I thought. Maybe, just maybe, I've been teaching them all to become expert leg-pullers!
Then again, maybe not. Because they were also joking with each other about having shampoo in their armpits. And that got the best laughs of all.
Maybe it's something only a six-year-old can appreciate.
