I'm actually not a big holiday person.
What is up with St. Patrick's day? Am I missing the boat here? I never thought it was that big of a deal. It seems like everyone I chat with has something to say about today being St. Patrick's day. So?
What is the history of this holiday anyway? Is it some pagan twisted tradition blown out of proportion?
ok I just googled it and so maybe it's a more important holiday than I thought...maybe even meaningful for some religions and cultures...sorry to those Irish Catholics out there and to those who have been looking forward all year to making green pancakes for breakfast today.
My poor children. They live in a St. Patrick's day deprived home. How will they ever come out of their childhood normal?
If you want to see an amazing mom in action you must visit
Tami's blog and see...how amazing she is as a mommy. She has done something exciting for her kids every day this month in celebration of St. Paddy's Day. She has called it "Lucky You" month...and you know, her kids are pretty dang lucky. My girls are lucky to know what day of the week it is, let alone celebrate St. Patrick's day...
So I hope you all have a very lucky day today and we will see if I somehow attempt to make this day more meaningful for my girls next year.
I did make guacamole today. Does that count?
