PARENTS STRIKE BACK!
Just before Halloween, one of my sons played a trick on Stan and me by leaving 82 pumpkins for us, everywhere! Click HERE to see what he did and what we did with all of those pumpkins!
Well…..Stan and I have been planning a little trick to tease them back a bit.
We gathered together 58 or 59 boxes (I lost count) and in 10 of the boxes we put treats, and in 10 we put a Walmart gift cards, each with a whopping $1 loaded on it – big budget….what can I say. Every single box was filled with crumpled newspaper, packing supplies or confetti; we have a great paper shredder by the wayAfter preparing for our ‘trick’, we volunteered to tend their boys while they went on a date.
After they left, we executed our strike back.
While I watched the kiddos, Stan went to their house to ‘take care of business’.
He placed one box, which was filled very full with confetti braced precariously at the front door so when they entered, it would spill out.The boxes were in the bathroom, the kitchen, the bedroom – all over every bit of the house.We didn’t make it too messy—- just enough for the grandboys to have fun in – Which we didn’t plan, but it was a great side benefit. hahahahaThey found the goodies in all the chaos!Tag, You’re it!!!
