Messy Room Pranksting

Britt and I played a fun trick on Brailey Shaye, this past Friday. It was hilarious! I rearranged her room, which I have been wanting to do for a while, now, but putting on the backburner, because I knew it would be a big project. This caused a big mess, of course, because while my little girl may give off the illusion that she is neat and tidy, it is definitely just that - an illusion. You can't believe the things I found under her bed! Not to mention the disaster her armoire had turned into... Everything looks like it is put away. Until you open a door or closet or look under her bed. She has done this for as long as I can remember. Anyway, I got as much of it cleaned up as I could before it was time for Britt and I to leave and pick Brailey Cakes up from school, which to be honest, wasn't very much.

In any case, we always have ice skating after school on Fridays, and meet up with Brailey's friend Coral and her mom Suzanne. Suzanne and I even donned our skates and partook in the skating, this time! It was so much fun... I used to just drop Brailey off with Suzanne and Coral and then Brady would pick her up. But now, Britt likes skating so much, he skates on Fridays as well as Wednesdays, which is our other day for Brailey's skating lesson. Which means I stay on Fridays, now. We only have two more Fridays until the rink closes, so we are skating while the skatin's good, if you know what I mean.

Back to the little joke we played on Brailey Shaye, though...

So Britt and I decided that we wouldn't say a word to Brailey about what "we" had done. He was my moral support, more than anything. While I moved and cleaned things, he, of course, talked my ear off about a million different things and was just happy as he could be to roll around on Brailey's bed, watching me. And talking. Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk...

By the time we got home from skating, it was nearly six o'clock. So we ate by candlelight, just like we always do on Friday nights, and then the two little B's and I came into my office, which is right next to Brailey's room, Britt and I looking at each other and hoping she would go into her room. But she didn't! She didn't even seem to notice the mess in the hallway, which was her stuff! So I had to say, "Okay, time for pajamas!" I winked at Britt, and he smiled at me but never said a word, and we waited together while Brailey went into her room, and then we got our reaction.

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! What did you do to my room?!"

At this point, Britt and I were laughing hysterically, which made her a little angry. But then we got right to work on cleaning it up, and did as much as we could until it was time for bed. We finished cleaning and organizing it the next day, and then last night, Brady and I built a cute little set of shelves, which completely finished it off. Her room looks darling!

Finally, just this morning as we were getting ready for school, Brailey said, "You know, that was a funny joke you and Britt pulled on me." And we laughed!
