Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The hunky hubby is a champion of the practical joke. And this serves him well in his profession. But somehow all three of his small sons have inherited this from their father, despite the fact that two of them look a great deal like me.

Case in point. Sweet boy #1 was waxing eloquent about the many wonders of the universe when he had an idea. A glorious idea that sweet boy #2 was willing to enact with him. And I pictured the headlines as news of their evil deed rocketed across our country.

Practical Joke Gone Wrong!

Of course this will be years from now, as we shall not permit such epic naughty within our home. But I have no doubt that at some point these boys shall try and perhaps pull their youngest brother into their nefarious plot along side them.

Sweet Boy #1–“I have an exciting trick! We could paint earth so that it looked like Jupiter and Jupiter so that it looked like Earth and spacecraft would be confused!”

Sweet Boy #2–“I would do the painting!”

What practical jokes have you encountered that seemed funny at the onset, but had terrible consequences in the end. Like a layer of tan and red paint across the entire surface of a previously life filled planet?


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!

    Practical jokes scare me – I don’t even like surprises because I fear being tricked! So I don’t really have a good practical joke cache to use on others.. nope.

    hmmm mine are always leaping from closets and doorways hoping to lure me into fright. I try to sound scared but they see through my ruse and thus continue to try.
