We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Nailed it. (jk)

 To be truthful, I had a horrible Monday with Lukas so I gave myself a redo and celebrated on Tuesday. Simple, but wow he was all excited to have green eggs & blue pancakes for breakfast and we watched a 3 minute YouTube video a friend posted on fb about Saint Patrick while eating. Who knew he was a slave for 6 years and that the St Patrick's day color used to be blue??  Anyways, as a complete opposite of the day before, it was amazing the immense joy that a few drops of food coloring and a neatly set table brought. I didn't go alllll out with some party scene, with balloons and treats in shoes or a trashed living room from leprechauns (that's like a mix between Nikolaus Tag and a day with Lukas)  but made the day a little different, just to make it fun. (Not that doing more is BAD, it's just that...well...it's just Saint Patrick's Day. And I don't like to promote getting, getting and more getting. And more cheap crap in my house.) So, well, I decided after feeling guilty for not doing a darned thing for the green day (i asked- little man didn't want to wear green. And why whould I have convinced him to change? Because of some social pressure? Oh, honey, that's what middle school is for. Not four years old when you're finally dressed in anything and out the door) and to boot, he had one.tantrum.after.another.on Monday. So my goal was to make it much different than the horrible day which preceded it. Is it weird to call the fish sticks leprechaun legs? It works, right? That hat was a dollar by the way. Thank you Dollar Store and the hardworking children in China for the cheap fun you brought to our home after a day worth forgetting.
