While I don't believe in going all wild and crazy for every holiday, (it would just make me more wild and crazy than I already am) I do try to do a little something with my kids.
Generally for St. Patrick's Day, we make leprechaun traps.
Aaaaaaaaaaand............ that's about it.
I don't even wear green.
But this year, we didn't get around to it, even though I had already bought chocolate for it.
Pish, of course I bought chocolate! Oh ye of little faith.
Savannah was a little bummed we didn't make traps. But don't worry, it all worked out in the end.
The kids down-right loved it.
Sometimes my brilliance amazes me.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. It's all about the candy.
KEEPING IT REAL
Not long after discovering the note, a huge fight broke out over the chocolate coins... before 7:30am. It was so bad that I took them all away, laid down the rule that no friends were allowed over, and we were going to spend the entire afternoon cleaning the house.
I am proud to say that I followed through with that. The kids did earn a chocolate gold coin at the end of every room cleaned.
Now my house it SO much cleaner than it had been, the chocolate is almost gone, and the kids had a good afternoon.
Score one for Mom.
I get an extra chocolate for that.
