Dear Kid,

It’s April!

National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day DearKidLoveMom.comWhich of course means

April 1. This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four. ~Mark Twain, Pudd’nhead Wilson

The best April Fool’s prank this year (at least that I heard about) was the Burger King commercial (in France) advertising the single French fry serving. See the video here.

In other awesome celebration news, today is Children’s Book Day and National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day.

I suggest celebrating simultaneously, but that’s probably just my crazy sense of style.

I don’t think anyone has scientifically proven that PB&J is one of the Perfect Foods, but I think it has to be in the top 10. Or maybe top 100.

I love children’s books. Children’s books are meant to be read out loud. They are meant to be read with someone snuggling next to you or sitting in your lap. They are not really meant for reading to oneself, but I say Break With Tradition! It’s a holiday! Go crazy and read a children’s book to yourself.

Or at least think about one fondly while nibbling a PB&J sandwich.

Love, Mom
