Things are certainly different now that I have kids. Especially the holidays. I find myself doing way more than I ever thought just to make the day feel a little more special. As a kid, St. Patrick's Day meant our home would be filled with the scent of corned beef and cabbage. Not one of my favorite meals (or smells) but it was our tradition and it's become a fond memory.
Since I knew Abby wouldn't eat corned beef and cabbage (we're on a hotdog and pizza diet at the moment), I had to come up with a different plan. One a bit more toddler friendly. I came across the idea of Leprechaun traps on Pinterest. You can get creative and come up with your own but I wasn't feeling too creative so I used this idea as my starting point.
We found a nice size rock outside and painted it gold to try and lure the leprechaun into our trap.
I covered up the blunder by saying that the leprechaun must have realized it wasn't real gold so he left it. I guess leprechauns don't fall for any tricks!
That crafty leprechaun also left some green jello (which Abby thought was more fun to play in than eat), pistachio pudding, and he even turned our pancakes and eggs green!
I forgot about these and had to quickly click through so she didn't catch them. I think I was successful but can't be too sure since she catches on to everything!
