Maia comes running out of her bedroom excitedly proclaiming.
“It’s the first day of April! It’s the first day of April!”
“That’s right,” I said, “but you know what? I saw the weather report and they said they are going to cancel the Easter egg hunt this weekend because of bad weather.”
“I’m just kidding sweetie. The Easter egg hunt isn’t cancelled. It’s April Fools’ Day, remember? You have to get ready for lots of tricks like that today.”
More tears, in spite of herself.
Needless to say, Maia’s introduction to this “holiday” isn’t going too smoothly.
