HAPPY ST.PATRICK'S DAY
Laila is in the green today. There is a competition in her class to wear the most green, so she has 12 green things on from her colored green sandals to the top of her ribbon banded head...she is ecstatic! We'll see if she has the most green on in her class and if she wins the prize. She was wanting to paint her skin green, like the witch in WICKED and then she would win for sure...I had to draw the line somewhere. Green Contacts?-- I said, "no."
She wrote a letter this week to
Happy St. Pat's Day.
I would like a new DS game and my Dad needs a new DS too, because he is always using mine. Thanks, Laila."
I don't know where she got the idea that a Leprechaun leaves gifts like Santa...but she does.
I've told her it's not happening. We are making green cookies to give away when she gets home from school today-- but that's about as much holiday happiness that I can muster.
I love that she loves all holidays.
I know there will come a day when she doesn't want to wear green on St. Patrick's because it's not cool. So I'll just enjoy her childish enthusiasm on this day.
