We love holidays in this house. I blame my mother.
When we were growing up, we’d wake up on St. Patrick’s Day to all of our furniture being flipped upside down. Pictures were crooked, things would be misplaced. Those damn leprechauns. You guys…she did this even when we were in junior high and high school. We’d have holiday-themed meals for each holiday and get little treats. Dude, holidays rock.
I’m maybe 1/4 as fun as my mom. Did you really think I’d mess up furniture and tilt pictures? Not a chance. But I may or may not have forgotten to pick up the kids’ clothes from yesterday and blamed it on those tiny red headed Irishmen. I did, though, put green food coloring in our pancake batter and in our milk.
(I am, hands down, the worst pancake maker in the history of ever. I can’t cook one correctly to save my life.)
Oh, I also hit up Walmart last week and got some tiny little hats.
I also force my children to wear the color of the holiday.
Because I’m freaking fun.
Happy St. Paddy’s Day! I hope your day ends in a really tall glass of Guiness.
