Hope you had a fun St. Pat’s Day! I am sick this week dealing with a cold that makes me super tired… Not to mention that I have a million things going on over the next few months. But who has time to complain. 🙂
As I am laying on my bed playing people with my daughter on Monday after picking my son up from school, he asks; “Mom, do you remember last St. Pats Day when that Leprechaun visited our house?” Me… “ummm, yeah (thinking in my head… o, crap why did I start that?!) My son, “That was one of the best days of my life! St. Patrick’s Day is so FUN!”
Of course as sick as I am… my heart thinks… “Wow, someday when he is 21 and going out for a beer with his buds he may tell them the stories of the times a Leprechaun visited his house and set up a cool scavenger hunt!” One of the best days of his life… so with the little bits and pieces I remember of my childhood, this may be one of the bits he remembers… So Monday night, you find me preparing to make St. Pats a great memory for my kids. Here is what I came up with this year:
When the kids woke up they found a treat at the table… Lucky Charms Cereal – The first sign of a Leprechaun… Mommy never let’s us buy that.
Hopefully when they get older they will recall the little ways Mommy and Daddy tried to make some times extra special. I hope they will look fondly upon their green memories!!!
