April 2, a much friendlier day

Who knew there would be such April Fool's Day animosity?

I like to kid around (duh), so obviously April Fool's Day is one of my favorites... at least, when I remember. This year I was excited because I'm married, and I could finally do the whole "I'm preggo" bit without some serious eyebrow raising. I didn't know babies were apparently off limits. Next year I'll pretend I'm in a coma (err someone else will have to pretend).

I'm sorry if you got your teeny smalls up! We aren't having a little baby. At least, not yet. (If Grahm had his way it wouldn't be for another five years.) But really, we definitely don't look like two people ready to rear a child.


Honestly, I got a bit of baby fever just from pretend telling everyone. It was so fun! Thank you for being excited for us, even if I was just yanking your gallbladder. Moral of the story: if you can't take a joke, maybe you should get you buns off this blog cause I'll be typing funnies (to me, anyway) all up in your grill.

Until pooping out a bundle of love, I will settle for loving on my nanny twinsies. This is Anna in her little swing (a very hard moment to capture). Precious much?

LOL girl-- I knew it was joke only because I had about 6 friends do the same thing via Facebook. I read some of the comments on yesterdays post-- SHEESH! It's a joke peeps! :)

Love your funny sense of humor!!

The Presutti's said...

I did the same thing, and I couldn't believe how many people took it so seriously :)

Kylie said...

I totally fell for it... although I'm not sure why, since a ton of people pull the pregnant/engaged joke on Facebook. Wah wahhh. I guess I forgot all about it when I read your post. Dummy, right here! :)

Sar said...

Can't take a joke. Nope. Never.

I just found your cute blog through one of your comments (and I HAD to come here to figure out what on Earth "recently roached" was all about haha). I read your about me and laughed (P.S. my husband is an engineer and I'm a freelance writer! Weird). I married into an awkward last name, too, so I feel you on that.
I can't believe you actually went for the preggo April Fool's joke! Kudos to you for being brave enough to whip that one out!

Haha, I love it! And you know everyone is just waiting for the annoucement not that you are married. Every time I open up with "I have good news..." EVERYONE thinks I am preggers!

Alyx said...

Pahahaha, i thought about doing the preggers joke, too, and then decided against it because i didn't want my baby hungry mother in law to punch me in the gallbladder when she found out it was a joke.

Jes said...

Even if you were truly pregnant I would have been happy for you, but you really should think about your actions. When someone is a successful blog writer, the things you say affect those who read your blogs, and you'll never ever know who reads your blog.

J and A said...

ha ha that's awesome. I thought of doing that but my Gran reads my blog and she may have died from excitement!!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

awww...congrats...so exciting!

lori said...

i can't believe people got so worked up about it. the hubs and i are not trying to make a baby, but we're honestly not trying really hard to prevent it... and i catch myself daydreaming/getting excited about the possibility sometimes!

Second Hand Rose said...

Aww she's adorable! At least nannying will give you experience when you do have your little Roach! I can see why some people may find it hard if they are infertile or trying to get pregnant, but I can see your argument and it's only a light hearted blog after all. I love that photo of you two!

Lauren said...

haha! you certainly made me laugh girl...and anyone who reads your blog should expect nothing less! keep making us laugh girl, it's definitely what you do best!

Tyah Ferguson said...

The wonderful thing about blogs is you can choose to follow them based on shared interests and personalities. There will always be people in the world who don't agree with things that you will do. Following a blog is an option, and me personally, if I don't agree with something posted I don't comment or try to belittle someone. I just move on. April Fools is fair game for whatever you are brave enough to do! And as gullible as I am, I just don't comment on anything on this day! :)

Brittany Dawn said...

Hahaha!! That's so great! I'm glad you stumbled upon my little blog because I can tell I'm going to love yours!

Kell said...

I was surprised to see some of the not so nice comments you got, but I guess that's just how blogland is! Please don't listen to the 'tards saying that you need to censor what you say based on how popular a blogger you are.

wHiT said...

Ha ha I should have played that card too. But yes for baby fever. We are both in that same boat.

Q said...

And I think she has just expressed that she doesn't care about the things on her blog affecting other people, because it's *her* blog. If I worried about every person I've offended with my blog, I'd pretty much never leave the house.

For April Fool's this year, I told my boss that we would need to schedule a conference room for the Purdue marching band. He didn't buy it.... will have to work on a better one for next year.

Lauren said...

Oh my goodness girl! Those comments are brutal! I did the same thing via facebook and OH MY GOSH... never again! Lol! I had girls writing their own status about me saying that whoever does the "I'm Preggo" joke on april fools is not considerate and all this other stuff!? SERIOUSLY?! It's a JOKE people...! I found it hilarious! But I really can't wait for you guys to have babies! They will be SO cute!
