I have never been one to do any pranks on April 1st, but today I thought I would play with the Husband a little bit. So I sent him messages like, "I can't keep living like this anymore," "I don't want to leave my home to move with you," and "I'm not happy with you." I know to some this may seem very mean but in our relationship I can get away joking about this stuff. So I said all these and he tried to calm me down and assure me everything would be ok. After only a few minutes I tell him "I was going to try and drag this out longer but I feel really mean so I need to tell you that APRIL FOOLS!" and his reply was "Baby, I'm going to slap the shit outta you :/" No my Husband is NOT abusive. It was just an expression. Because he isn't around that was the best prank I could think of. If we were living together, I would have put butter all over the floor outside the shower instead so when he got out he would slip and fall, but I'll save that one for next year!! WAHAHAHA.
Next, I was going to post an ultrasound picture on Facebook, tag my husband, and announce we are pregnant! Just to scare his family. But I soon changed my mind on the idea when my friend told me that she miscarried her baby at 8 weeks this morning. NOT an April Fools day joke. I thought that posting a fake announcement like that would upset her and I can't do that. I've never been through anything like that but I've seen my mom go through a miscarriage and I don't wish that emotional pain on anyone. The thought of miscarrying my own child one day is something I do not like thinking about. Both my husband and I want to be parents and I know that a miscarriage would be just as hard on him as it would be on me. My heart aches for my friend. She just announced the pregnancy to everyone yesterday as a little Easter Surprise and now she has to tell her parents and her husband's parents that they are no longer going to be Grandparents?? She seemed so happy about this baby and she deserves to be happy after the life that she grew up with. I was so excited for her too because I love babies. It's hard for me because I don't know what to say to her. I don't know what she is going through and I know nothing I say will take away the pain she feels. I simply told her to stay strong, assured her that God had this in his plans for some reason, and that when the time is right she will be blessed with a child.
Have any of you done any good Aprils Fools Day Pranks!?
