On Being Five (Part 2)

Last Monday, April 10th, we arrived home from school. She's in the back seat and I'm pulling into the garage.

Five Year Old: Mom, there's a spider in your hair.

Me: No there isn't. Time to get out now.

Five Year Old: For real. There's a spider in your hair.

At this point, I've parked and am getting out the car, she's carrying on about a spider.

Me: Ok, let's get out. (I unbuckle her)

Five Year Old: April Fool's, Mom!!

Oh, if I had known that April Fool's Day was extended this year, I surely would've gotten into the spirit.

However, it must be very liberating not to have a sense of time or propriety.
