Here she is showing off her new "window" in her mouth.
On to my next topic...Leprechauns. My daughter informed me today that there has been a leprechaun visiting their classroom. They haven't seen him, he just moves things when they aren't looking or hides stuff or makes a mess. He's mysteriously similar to the gingerbread boy who visited their class near Christmas. Anyway, she gets really into stuff like this, she has a really vivid imagination. She claims to have seen the gingerbread boy and even brought home a crumb of his from her classroom. So, today being St. Patrick's Day she got all decked out in her green outfit (thanks to Aunt Bekah for buying her something green or I don't know what I'd have done). Then she remembered that the leprechaun was going to visit them today and she needed to make a trap for him. What? Yes, because apparently the other kids have been bringing in homemade traps all week and no one has caught him yet. I told her leprechauns are really sneaky so they probably won't catch him. But if she doesn't make a trap then he will go in Sarah's trap and she will get to take him home! O-kay, but remember, leprechauns are sneaky so she probably won't catch him. But she put Lucky Charms in her trap to catch him! Do I not see the urgentness of this situation? No, I don't. She gives me the look. The "if you don't let me make a trap I will hold it against you for a least a week and you'll feel guilty about not being a good mom" look. Okay, fine. So I, the sucker that I am, go tearing through my house searching for a box to use for a "trap". Geez, how big is a leprechaun anyway? Apparently about the size of a mouse according to her. She spent about an hour getting her trap ready. And then she put some pennies in there to lure him in, after all, he is searching for his gold, right?
I like how she's acting all nice in order to catch him. Come on, get your gold, little guy...
She's so proud. Hope she's not too disappointed when she doesn't catch him.
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Go drink some green beer! I mean, if you're into that sort of thing.
