Playful Prankster


Chase, my jokester child, is three years younger than Cody and, at times, can drive me just as nuts. He is much like the Tasmanian Devil. Everyone knows when Chase walks into a room.

I found myself thinking about the many times Chase has played jokes on me. Here are a few things that come to mind...

I came home one time to find a trail of Skittles leading from the garage door, through the kitchen, down the hall, to a note he'd left on his bedroom door.

More than once he set the alarm clock in my Coca-Cola collection to go off during the night!

Another time, upon arriving home from work, I found everything from the toaster to the television, labeled with Post-it Sticky Notes.

Not too long ago Don, Cody, Katelyn, and I came home from church and found all of our kitchen cupboards wide open and the drawers pulled out. Chase had left his mark.

Several times Chase made his handwriting look so much like mine, I didn't notice until I got to the store that he'd added to my grocery list items like Oreos, ice cream, doughnuts and Cheetos.

He did the same sort of thing when I would write out menus for the week. He'd cleverly sneak in the junk he liked to eat such as: cheeseburgers, nachos, and cheesy fries.

When he was sixteen, Chase called me from his vehicle and lead me to believe he was going be late getting home because he was behind a horrible wreck (as he walked through the front door).

These are just a few of the things that come to mind. Chase makes up stories a lot! A few years back, he had his co-workers believing some sob story about me being an alcoholic and he had to take care of his siblings because he found me passed out all of the time. ( FYI- I do not drink alcohol.)

His most recent attempt to drive me crazy can be seen in the picture below.


I found this CD in my car. Like I listen to rap! Gimme a  freakin' break child :)

It's funny when you look back on isn't it ????

Yeah. Except for the alarm going off during the night. I finally got wise and took the batteries out of the clock. Who cares if it doesn't tell real time, right?!

OMG! A person after my own heart...it's like we are molded from the same God-clay!! I had this evil aunt, who was married to this incredibly awesome uncle whom I adored. I was always dumped at their house when my parents needed a babysitter. They never had us three kids at the same sitter....so weird. I would always prank my aunt. Sjhe was going to hit me anyway, so it didn't matter if I was good or not. I did the alarm clock thing...but I hid the SOB. She eventually got Alzheimers and died....go figure!

Wow! I know some of those were not funny at the time, but thank goodness we have a sense of humor and can laugh about them now. He definitely would keep a mother on her toes!

It is a good thing that you have a good sense of humor about it all...might as well laugh at it huh? BTW, I don't like rap either.

Yeah, no alarm clock in the middle of the night. That is no joke!
