After Christmas we must have a new upcoming holiday to hype... to ease the pain of "Christmas is over?" They go through a well rehearsed list:
"Is girl's birthday?"
Nope. Sorry. That's over too.
"Then, Baby's birthday?"
No. we already had Grandmama's party, remember?
"So what next, Mama?"
I looked around, um, St. Patrick's Day is coming up.
"What's Patrick's Day?"
They had me on that one. When we wear green?
"We wear green? Then what?"
Oh, I don't know. Let's just get through this errand, ok?
Well apparently, as every blog on the planet is informing me: It's St. Patrick's Day! Today!
Luckily, (Ha! Pun!) I was able to rustle up some green duds and told the girls to don them... and hurry! (we're always in a hurry to go or do something it seems)
The girls were completely against the wearing green idea. Naturally.
But what's this? All three kids in green!
At least I'm not a complete slacker mom!
(perhaps I will even break out a little green food coloring for dinner...)
