I have a girl-child that loves to pull pranks. I'm not sure how it all started, but trust me when I say that it's turned into a monster! My son is also playing pranks now because he's trying to get his sister back. She's not the only victim of his pranks, though. It started out as trying to get even, but now my hubby and I are victims, as well. I have to say that these kids have been quite creative in their pranking. Of course, the MTV show, "Pranked," and YouTube videos have been particularly helpful in giving the kids no end of ideas.
My kids take melatonin at night. It's a natural sleep aid and helps them to fall asleep and sleep well. In fact, I take it, too. Well, the other night, my daughter faked taking it so that she didn't sleep through the night. She woke up at 4:45 am, unbeknownst to us. At around 5 am, we heard a bit of a commotion so David got up to find out what was going on.
Zach was disoriented and had water on his face and his bed. Fortunately, Girly took a video of her prank (it's nice to have evidence for the parents). I had to chuckle when I watched the video at her telling Zach not to wake Mom and Dad up. There's a bit of darkness at the beginning of the video, but hang in there.
Here's what she did to him. None of us were impressed, but Zach, after the fact, thought it was a pretty good prank.
Even though we've told them to hold off on the pranks, I have a feeling they're not going to listen. Just like they didn't listen when we told them the same thing before this prank was pulled off.
There's never a dull moment in this family.
