Mommyo: “It’s St. Patrick’s Day, The Five-Year-Old, do you know what that means?”
The Five-Year-Old, excitedly: “The leprechauns filled my pot with leprechaun money?”
The Five-Year-Old, persistently: “You filled my pot with leprechaun money?”
Mommyo: “No. It means everything we eat today has to be green. We’re eating nothing but boiled spinach, baby.”
The Five-Year-Old, slightly panicked: “Mommyo, you could buy a green dough for waffles. My preschool did it, and it was really nutritious.”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, y’all.
