Waffles with a Side of Spider

I knew my girls had been plotting to get me this April Fool's, but I wasn't too worried.  I would just play along, to their great amusement.

I went to pick my daughter up from first grade on Friday.  The second she stepped into the car I hear a loud high-pitched scream.
"Mom there's a spider in your hair!"
"Get it out!  Smack it!"  I yell in my truly panicked voice.
"April Fool's."
Apparently my 7-year-old has surpassed me in cleverness. 

As you would expect, for the next hour, my two girls and even my 2-year old boy thought it was hilarious to tell me there was a spider crawling on me.  I thought it was adorable for the first 15 minutes, then, I was done.

The next morning, my husband made waffles.  My girls were eating at the counter.  Suddenly,  my 5-year-old daughter shrieks, then yells, "Spider!!!  There's a spider on my plate!"  Quite a believable performance, but I am still ready to move on from this joke.  I casually saunter over to her, not even pretending to believe.

How was I to know a REAL spider had decided to join us for breakfast?


Grumpy Mom Goal of the Day:  I'm breaking out the spider spray.

Have I told you how much I love your blog title?
I think we need to start an on-line support group for moms of 4 :)
Your kids are funny. They must get that from their cool mommy.

I would have totally freaked out. I hate spiders almost as much as snakes.

My 3 year old daughter would have freaked out!! She is TERRIFIED of any type of bug!! Once there was a spider on the car play mat in the basement and she refused to go in that area for the next two days...So here's to hoping that no spiders end up on our plates!

The spider is gross, but I'm looking at those waffles. I would really like some of those right now. Heather

I am so loving reading your blog!!! I just played catch up to about 2 weeks worth of posts, and I am giggling at almost all of them! As for the spider, like I tell my 4 year old, it must be karma!!

Thanks for such a great read!!

This was hilarious--I laughed out loud and read it to my husband. Just checking in to say hi, and always appreciate your suggestions too! Have a great one!

I had a spider crawling on me the other day and thought I would jump out of my skin! Don't know why they freak me out so much!
