Shouldn't it be "Patty's" since it would be short for Patrick?
We started the day off.....totally not how I planned. Big fat mom fail as I slept through my alarm and botched a fun breakfast. Oh well. More important that I was up with the baby during the night, right? Poor kid. You forget how hard it is to be up every other hour after you've had the luxury of sleeping a decent number of hours for nearly two months.
But everyone was in green, and despite a little freak out from the seven year old who was "wearing green underwear but everyone keeps telling me it doesn't count and I can't find a green shirt that I want to wear and people are going to pinch me!", it was a fairly calm morning.
I figured I'd at least make the after school snack fun, so we went with Lucky Charms. They really are always after me Lucky Charms, so I shared.
For dinner the kids requested their now favorite St. Patrick's Day dinner, Leprechaun Pie. Which is really spinach quiche. Yes, my kids request spinach quiche. It's fabulous. They also requested green mashed potatoes. Who am I not to oblige? I think it would have worked a little better if we'd fried them up as hash browns, but whatever.
Charlotte felt the need to be artistic with her dinner. I didn't feel like being parental this evening, so she got away with it.
Even Sammy got in on the green meal, dining on a fabulous concoction of spinach, carrots and peas.
He loved it.
With key lime pie for dessert, I'll give this day full of green two thumbs up. I did forget to dole out the gold nuggets (Rolos), but I'm sure the kids won't mind those coming a day late.
Here, have one more little leprechaun picture.
Ok, two. But hey, he is one lucky little guy!
