Every day before I pull out of the parking lot at school, I ask everyone if they have everything they need and if they need anything we don’t have at home that I must get from the store.

Today, my kids got in, started chattering away and I asked the questions. Half way home, one of my children remembered that he forgot a paper that is due the next day. I dutifully turned the car around. We got to school. The classroom was locked. I spotted the teacher in the hallway and flagged her down. My son then added that he needed to ask the teacher a question about the assignment, that the page she had prescribed didn’t exist in the workbook when he checked. This is a kid that sometimes does his work in the car and as such, I didn’t question his concern. He's meticulous about his work.

We returned to the classroom and the teacher asked about the incorrect page. The little imp grinned. “April Fools.”

It took a lot of convincing to make me stop at the CVS on the way home for some markers.

That's cute. At least his little prank didn't cause any harm.

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.
