The oldest trick in the book, blog style. Sadly those weren’t my positive pregnancy tests. But I have decided if I do get pregnant between now and next April I’m definitely saving the announcement until April 1st, then not speaking a word of it again until delivery.
I got about 40 of yall, and only published the comments of those who forgot it was April Fools Day. The other 120 or so weren’t fooled. I published those late last night. It was funny reading the range of responses from “AGAIN?!” to “Wow, you’re on your way to having a true Mormon family…” to a few sad faces. Sorry if it offended anyone. Seriously. I know pregnancy is a touchy subject for some people and that wasn’t the purpose, the purpose was to make you laugh, which I think most everyone totally got. Especially ones who forgot about the date for a moment or Googled “positive pregnancy tests.”
Good news is one of my readers, someone who comments on almost every single one of my posts–Even the lame ones where no one comments found out SHE’S pregnant yesterday, after trying for 11 months! So congratulations to Toi! I didn’t believe her at first, and she didn’t get why. So show her some love when you get a chance!
One of my friends pretend-chopped off her finger and freaked her husband out. My husband and I changed our relationship status on Facebook to “open relationship,” which got curious responses. Did you or your kids pull any pranks?
