It was 8:45am when my husband texted me, "Happy St. Patrick's Day." I had completely forgotten and dressed two of my three in plain clothes, not a hint of green in sight. Thank goodness my oldest goes to a hippy school because he came home and said, "We don't pinch at Kapka, we give hugs." So it was a surprise when the leprechaun found time to sneak attack the kids while "everyone" was out of the house for the day. Can you believe that sneaky guy? He made a horizontal green block in front of the kids' closets. Piper got vertical streamers and each kid found a bag of golden chocolates. That leprechaun is tricky and endearing.
