Worms for Lunch!!

This is what I made Kade for lunch yesterday (April Fools Day...)

Worms! Yummy and nutritious!!!

Kade almost threw up when I showed him the worms frying up in the sauce pan.

"Oh, wait... is this a trick? Are you playing an April Fools joke on me?"

"Kade, why would I do that? This is your lunch. Worms are good for you."

"Eww, no they're not!"

"Of course they are! Cows, fish, and chicken are good for us! So are worms!"

"I am NOT going to eat that. No way."

After that he started looking at me really funny. Kind of disgusted and appalled. He shook his head and went to sit on the couch and told me he wasn't hungry any more.

I don't blame him! Those worms were especially unappetizing. Especially after I added the ketchup! ;c)

It took me quite a while to convince him that I was, after all, playing an April Fools joke on him. For a bit, he thought that me telling him it was a joke, WAS the joke, and that those were actual worms I was trying to trick him into eating. I'm not that mean!

It wasn't until I showed him how I made them that he believed me. Then he thought it was the funniest thing in the world, and he happily ate his bloody worm sandwich, even asked for seconds on the worms!

(If you'd like to make some worms for someone special - and gullible - in your own life, here's how: slice up a few cheese-dogs, or plain hot-dogs, into about 6 thin slices. Fry in a tiny bit of oil, or boil. They'll curl up and look nice and wormy! Have fun!)

Happy Easter!

Kade's school held an Easter program last night. It was fantastic!! So adorable and sweet... I will admit, I cried a few times! They did the Tale of the Three Trees. I'm so glad I was able to record the songs with my camera. Here is one of them. Kade has a solo at the end!

Kade found us all in the crowd, and I could see his face light up when he saw us. He is usually a pretty shy little guy, but you never would have guessed that last night! He didn't seem to be nervous of being in front of all the people (unless yawning is a nervous tick? He yawned about 100 times... don't know what that was about! lol). He enjoyed it actually! He's always telling me that when he grows up, he wants to be a famous rock star. He didn't even want to leave the stage when it was over. He just sat down and hung out until I came down to get him!

Here are a few of the family members that came to see Kade. I didn't get a picture with us, or Kade's other grandparents, unfortunately.

I did get a photo with Kade's teacher, Miss Janice! He loves her to death! She was the director, and she did an amazing job! From what I could tell, the whole thing went smoothly, which is pretty impressive!

What special memories! :)

I'll post some better photos of Kade's costume later. My mom offered to help me make it, since I hurt my back. It was lots of fun!

Happy Easter!
