My April Fool

Soapfi may not really understand the concept of April Fool’s Day quite yet, but she is certainly getting into the spirit of things anyway.

I have been dreading the day where I answer her with “Because I said so”, and luckily it hasn’t happened yet. However, we apparently ask her why she does things far to often, since *she* is the one who has started answering all our questions “because”. Even though she started it, I still feel obligated to give her a good answer once she begins to ask why… at least the first three times.

And a side note about me – I finished my “Can Do 5K” yesterday in 53 minutes, a full five minutes better than my January 5K. And it means my New Years Resolution to do a 5K in every odd month is still unbroken. Waiting for sign ups for the May Color Run to open and then the streak can continue, I just don’t think I’ll be beating this time by another five minutes in May, especially since we’ll be getting pelted with color filled water balloons!

  1. Love the box on the head….My most reliable response to the tenth “why” question in a row became: “I don’t know. Let’s look it up on the internet when we get home.” Usually they just forgot about it by then….

    • Excellent – I will definitely put that stock answer in my bag of tricks, she’s going to be a “But why?” kid, I can tell!

  2. Congrats on the 5k! That is extremely impressive to me!
