Pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, green clovers and blue diamonds…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

This morning Kyle told me that a few little Leprechauns must have snuck into our house. And would you know, when I poured the milk for Eli and Kyle’s cereal, it magically turned green. Crazy! Then, as I poured hot water into a measuring cup for their dinosaur oatmeal, the water turned green as well. And while half-way covering his mouth in green-colored-food delight, Eli burst into the most glorious giggles. Even when Kyle saw the box of food coloring, he assured me that those silly little leprechauns must have colored our milk themselves.

Moments later, still caught up in the St.Patrick’s day fervor, Kyle came running up the stairs and with an impish look on his face and pointing at his pajamas, assured Eli that these very same leprechauns turned the rockets on his pajamas from blue to green to. I am still trying to figure out those little green guys did that.

I better go. Kyle is trying to find the green Sharpie. He wants to draw four leaf clovers all over his arms. He already tried with the Washable Markers, but we all know what happens when waters touches Washable Ink.

  1. What a cute idea! My kids (almost 4 and just 2) don’t quite get the St. Paddy’s Day thing yet, but I’ll remember this for next year! Minus the green Sharpies, of course. (I’ve had to hide my Sharpies so many times that I can’t even find them now…)

    BTW, I loved your “ski date” post, too! Very well written and moving.

  2. Those Leprechauns are sneaky little things aren’t they. Sounds like they had fun at your house this morning.

    Hide those sharpies, we had an incident with a black on a few days ago.

  3. Cee, I will be hiding the Sharpies, for sure!

    Did I ever tell any of you about the time Eli found a blue Sharpie and decided the grout in our kitchen floor needed to be a new color? Yeah, it was a hoot and a half. Thank goodness for Soft Scrub with Bleach and an old toothbrush.

  4. Egad. The Sharpie was created to drive mothers crazy.

    What a cutie! I can just picture his funny little grin, thanks to all your pictures.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂

  5. Sounds like a fun morning! So far our celebration has included a green hairband…
    I need to get with the program –
