Kids: Mom, can we have ice-cream for snack today?
Me (being a great, yet responsible parent): Sure, as long as you clean up before snack time.
Kids (being kids): Awww, mom. We hate cleaning up. What will you give us for snack if we DON'T clean up?
Kids (laughing): Mom, you never give us broccoli for snack.
(That sounds just a tiny bit like a dare.)
Incognito broccoli disguised as an ice cream cone.
Bryce (on finding the nutritious tag along in his cone): Mom, you should have done this for April Fools Day.
Maybe next year.
(In case you missed this years April Fools Day fun, see below.)
