Right idea, wrong words

This morning my 6 yr old woke up and I told her I'd gotten a phone call that our spring break was cancelled. Her jaw dropped and she stared at me in absolute shock...then I looked down at her and said "April Fools!" I swear I thought she'd kill me!

We ended up explaining the whole concept of April Fools Day to my 4 (almost 5!) yr old and she just didn't seem to get it.

As the girls, my husband and I sat at the table having lunch today, my 4 yr old said "why do you and daddy fight so much?" Huh? I was stunned, we really don't fight (and NEVER would in front of our kids...). I was totally bummed out. I said "L, I don't get it, Daddy and I don't fight." She said "I saw you crying in the kitchen and daddy was yelling at you." Now I was cmopletely at a loss, trying to think back if this could possibly be true. She looked up at me with her beautiful bright blue eyes and said "Trick or treat!" She cracked me up beyond belief, she meant to say "April Fools!"

I'll admit it, I was totally taken by a 4 yr old. How amusingly perfect. Whether you have kids or not, like kids or not, you have to admit, they certainly have a way with words!
