The big announcement

As most of you know today is April 1st otherwise known as April Fools Day. So this morning I talked to my husband and asked him if he would like to help me play a trick on the kids. Normally we don't even pay any attention to April Fools Day, but for some reason the kids have been talking all week about it and trying to cook up pranks so I thought we would one up them. After breakfast we called all the kids into the living room and told them we had a big, life changing announcement for them. Kylie reluctantly put down the wii remote and Audrey and Sophie stopped coloring and they sat down and looked at us. Then we made the announcement....."Mommy is pregnant!" Audrey and Sophie yelled "What!?" and Kylie? Kylie just turned around and went back to playing her game on the wii. Audrey and Sophie told us they wanted a girl and then they told Kylie she was going to have to her room with the baby because there was no way they were going to do it. Meanwhile Kylie still kept playing her wii. I even bought a test to show the non-believer (granted it didn't have the lines on it, but we didn't think they would look at it that closely.)
 Kylie still played her wii so I asked her if she was excited. She looked at me and rolled her eyes and said "yeah, nice April Fools trick." So I guess our plan was a dud. Oh well next year I'm really going to have a good one planned for her.
