I showed Isaak the erasers, and he thought they were the funniest thing ever. He was laughing because they look like lipstick.
I told him that night, "Don't tell Mica, but we're going to play a joke on him in the morning. We're going to see if he'll try and put this lipstick on." Isaak was laughing so hard. It was a giggle laugh.
The morning came. I said, "Isaak why don't you show Mica my new lipstick colors." He went and got them. Mica said, "Ewww...purple!"
Isaak said, "Mica just try it on."
So he did.
He even went to check himself out in the mirror. Mica said, "Well it's not working." Remember boys don't know what lipstick feels like to put on.
Isaak was giggling the whole time.
We finally told him that it's not lip stick he's applying. It's an eraser.
Then the boys wanted to take 1 "lipstick" to their teachers at school. I said, "Sure I have plenty. If you do play a trick on them, tell them the truth that it is in fact an eraser."
Isaak got home that night, and said that his teacher didn't know it was an eraser. She thought he found the "lipstick" on the playground. Then Isaak said, "No my Mom told me I could give you the 'lipstick'."
So the fun practical joke went from funny to weird. Isaak's teacher probably thought I was some nutty Mom giving her play lipstick.
I emailed her, and told her the "lipstick" Isaak gave her is an eraser.
Note to self: Never send your 6 year old to school with a practical joke.
Mica pulled the joke on his teacher, and soon came clean. All went well with the 9 year old.
