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 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.
