Always more time for foolin' the kids . . . and margaritas!

What happens when . . .

3) There is an international holiday centered around margaritas?!

Mommy decided that she still wanted to have her spring egg hunt, but couldn’t get her sh*t together fast enough to do it before Easter, so she decided to have it 3 weeks later and make it an April Fools, Cinco de Mayo Spring Egg Hunt.

Ain't no foolin . . .

. . . it was a baaaaaaad stay at home mommy day, and I kept wondering when someone was going to jump out of the closet and yell "April Fools"!

Here's what I learned about messing with your kids on April Fool's Day:
