Bloggy Moms April Blog Dare
This month the Bloggy Moms were given a Blog Dare. Each day we receive a lead in phrase to the article for the group. Come along with me as I try to keep pace with the Bloggy Moms Blog Dare challenge.
There were so many...shocked faces when the April Fool’s Day prank got turned around! Last year, my older children decided to prank me on April Fool’s Day by telling me one of them was expecting.
This didn’t play out quite the way they planned!
Several weeks before the scheduled event, the crew decided they would “get me” this year. The children have pulled some pretty good ones off over the years; but they had never banded together to “get Mom”!
The plan was to tell me that one of the married girls was expecting when she wasn’t and the timing probably was not the best…. Just say that there were a lot of factors in play that this would not have been the optional time for her to bring a child into this world.
So what happens? Guess who finds out that she (they) are expecting the same day the planned “mom blitz” is scheduled? Yep! Six stick tests later and a panic attack at the doctor’s office for a blood test confirmed the status.
Well, she was apparently too upset over her current condition to bother to tell the others in the group and so when they all arrived for dinner at mom’s….they were all set to jump on the bandwagon. Little did they know that when she lovingly blurted out the news… she was telling the truth!
Everyone else went along with the planned story…said daughter is in tears and everyone else just thought she was just a great actress! She even had a “stick” as proof. (I wonder where they thought she got that prop?)
Needless to say…the prank was on the group! Mom couldn’t have been more excited for the news, but the delivery (of the news and the actual birth) was not what I expected!
What goes around; comes around!
