Aiden pretty much thinks his Mama is the coolest Mama on the block.

On St. Patrick's Day, we had lunch outside. It's been such beautiful weather and to take advantage of it, we've been eating our lunches outside on the weekends.
 My mom also put a table cloth down on the table - so the kids could color to their hearts' content!
 My mother-in-law (who just started her own handmade clothing company!!) made these ADORABLE St. Patty's Day shirts for the kids to wear.
Seriously! How adorable!
I thought it'd be really fun if I changed all the kids' food to green all day. When I did the mac and cheese, I kinda thought Connor might not eat it because it looked so different and a little scary. But, he laughed and laughed. He continued to giggle with every bite!
I let him help me turn his milk green and then he became fascinated with it (since then he has asked me to turn all of his food different colors! Ha!)
I even turned the babies' night time bottles green!
Aiden thinking Mama's pretty much the coolest Mama on the block.
P.S. Next time I decide to put food coloring in their food, I should probably warn their preschool!! It made for a very interesting and scary diaper change for them. Oops!

**I am sure a lot of you have seen that Let's Bring Holidays Down a Notch post floating around. I actually do not agree with her at all. I think she was trying to be funny, but in my humble opinion instead it came across like she was judging those moms who do that stuff. I think her intention was to say "don't judge me for NOT doing it" and I totally get that, but I shouldn't feel judged for wanting to do it either. I may do big parties for my kids, celebrate with Elf on the Shelf for 25 days, and dye all my kids' food green on St. Patrick's Day, but we also stay in our pajamas a lot of Saturdays, forget to send in stuff I agreed to send into preschool, and feed my kids McDonald's hamburgers when I'm tired and stressed. I am certainly no Mother of the Year. I think this blog says everything I feel Yes, I am one of those moms from The Larson Lingo. I just don't want to be judged for doing what works for my family.

I think turning your kids food green sounds like so much fun. I too agree with you. Each family should do what is right for them and we should all be less judgemental about how we each choose to parent.

1) LOVE the patio furniture. :) 2) Love that you even turned the babies milk green- so fun. 3) I agree with you about that article. I was mixed ... I think things have def changed since we were kids- people go absolutely over the top with holidays and such for their kids. But I LOVE it. I think our kids will always remember these moments and experiences. I'm going to keep on doing it at home and in the classroom. :) And if it bothers her- so be it.
