I realize St. Patrick's day was nearly a week ago and you've long since forgotten it. But no holiday goes un-celebrated around here and I thought I'd share a little.
Parker built a leprechaun trap. No luck catching any. Those mischievous little leprechauns were all over the trap...even danced a jig on it...and left the footprints behind to prove it. (Footprints AND gold wrapped candy.)
On St. Patrick's Day eve, I went to make leprechaun footprints and realized all my craft supplies were in Grays room and he was asleep (just one of the perils of having a small house). So I printed off tons of footprints from a computer image. The whole time thinking Parker will never buy this.
He woke up pretty excited about his night time visitors, but by breakfast started in on his own investigation. On his own, he Google searched "leprechaun footprints." (Remember, he's only 5.) He found the exact same footprints I used. He printed them out and compared shape, size and the fading of the printer ink.
Parker concluded that the footprints did in fact come from our printer, but never once questioned their origins. Those tricky little leprechauns must have snuck onto our computer the night before and printed them off themselves.
Kids are such a riot. I'm glad he has some of his dad in him. I am way too logical, but Spencer is all about the magic. I think Parker is a pretty happy medium.
