Ok, so yes…I prank my kids.
I have a long history of pranks…some going over well and some flopping.
And yes, I enjoy laughing at my children’s expense, as long as it’s all in good fun…sue me.
I am sure some of you don’t agree with pranking, and that’s fine…but I will tell you, as long as my kids get a laugh along with me, I say it’s all in good fun.
Here’s what I did…
I waited until my boys went to sleep and sneaked into their bedroom wielding a can of whipped cream. My husband begrudgingly was my accomplice, holding the camera.
My 8 year old, being on the bottom bunk was the target…AND my 6 year old was awake, watching the whole thing go down.
I squeezed some whipped cream into his hand and then tickled his ear to get him to wipe whipped cream all over his face…
Really, a cheap laugh…but a laugh none-the-less. It doesn’t take much.
Also, just a warning…I apparently snort when I laugh more often than I knew…AND in the middle of the video my husband tried to film me laughing and I swatted the camera out of his hand with a swift, “wax-on” karate chop…sorry about that.
Now…just to show you that my son is a good sport…I videoed him watching the prank the next morning…again, please excuse the snorting.
Around the 1:05 second mark he loses it
So yes, pranks are fun…and the thing is my kids are always trying to find ways to get me back.
We live in a house on high-alert!
