Reason #114

Big Pup loves calendars. Santa brought him a Thomas & Friends calendar and he has it hanging in his room. He loves marking off the days (sometimes marking them off a week in advance), writing down everyone's birthday, and keeping track of the holidays. So he was quite aware--and prepared--for April Fool's Day.

Yesterday morning, just before 7 a.m., he got out of bed and curled up on the couch. I went into the living room to ask what he wanted for breakfast and the first thing he said to me was:

Big pup: Mommy, you have ants in your pants!
Me: What?!
Big pup: April Fool's!
Me: You're silly.
Big pup: Mommy, you have a spider on your head.
Me: (gasp)
Big pup: April Fool's!
Me: Oh, yeah? Well, today I'm taking you to the doctor and you're going to get a shot!
Big pup: (silence, then sad face. proceed to crying. hard. with tears.)
WD: (coming into the living room) What on earth did you say to him?
Me: (sputtering) April Fool's! April Fool's!
Big pup: (more crying)
Me: No doctor! No shot's! April Fool's!

Eventually he calmed down. We both agreed that it wasn't a very funny joke but he forgave me. I guess I'll know better next year.

  1. Poor thing, I shouldnt have laughed at this. I've been reading all my blogs on my lunch hour, so not much time to comment, but I did have to comment on this. Still can't decide whether or not this is funny.

  2. Sounds like something WD would do doesn't it? Certainly not me! And yet...
