April Fool!

My kids live for April Fool’s Day. They love jokes and nothing pleases them more than pulling one over on us. High expectations are set for trickery. I got them with breakfast this morning.


A dab of food coloring on the bottom of the bowl covered with dry cheerios. They magically turned blue when I poured milk on them. And the milk in the cup? Mixed with gelatin. It’s spill proof. I loved the look of bewilderment on Oli’s face as he tipped the cup in expectation of a sip.

I packed them a very special lunch today. And I’m working on dinner and dessert. “Sponge” cake anyone?
