How to get your child to hate St. Patrick’s Day

And maybe vegetables.

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?”

Mommyo: “No.”

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.”

No spinach was harmed in the making of this waffle.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, y’all.

About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, muse about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
