  1. Once my girls got the hang of it this morning (they are 4 and almost 3), they couldn’t stop! They faked sickness with their grandmother to stay home from pre-school, we told Daddy to wake up and shovel because it was snowing outside, they hid stuffed animals in the fridge, they told me I had a spider in my hair, we snuck in the bathroom and turned Daddy’s shower water to all cold (OK, that was my idea and Daddy didn’t find it nearly as funny as we did!)…and on and on and on! I loved watching their little imaginations try to scheme up the next trick! 🙂
