7 year old: Mum what trick can I play on my class for April Fool’s Day?

Tasmiya: You could tell your teacher that for the holidays we are going to the moon?

7 year old: That’s a good one!

Tasmiya: Or you could tell all your classmates that Santa is in hospital.

10 year old: Mum, that’s a bit mean!

7 year old: But it does make sense that he would get hurt if he fell off his sleigh.

Tasmiya: Yes! He could have any number of broken bones. All the kids would be so worried that he wouldn’t be able to give them Christmas presents. They’d all be crying! HA!

10 year old and 7 year old: MUM!!
