Happy St Pattys Day Enjoy some #Leprechaunmagic

Posted on March 16, 2018 at 6:37 PM Comments comments ()
Enjoy creating memories with your child that you both will treasure for years to come!  All of my best, Dyan





We are keeping up with holiday traditions this year.  My daughter decided that she wanted to put out her special rainbow craft she made in preschool and every night we need to put out a gold coin for the #Leprechaun,  make a wish and leave it for the #Leprechaun to eat.....she said we did that last year,  I don't remember making St Patricks Day so involved, but she has insisted upon it.  
So, that is what we have done every night before she goes to bed, we take a gold coin and set it next to her special rainbow, she closes her eyes and makes a wish.  Really and truly a precious moment to experience!!  
Yes, it is a lot of work to remember to open the coin at night (or morning) if I forget the night before, and dispose of the candy, but it is worth it. She loves the idea of putting out a coin and making a wish and hoping for that #Leprechaunmagic!  
This one might not be for you, but I can't help playing a long.  For many reasons,...she believes in the magic, it is exciting for her to do every night and it is something she looks forward to every evening.  But, the most important reason of all for me, is I know these moments of believing in the fairy tales of life (Santa, the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny) will soon be coming to pass.  So yes, I will go along with her and cherish each and every second of  these childhood beliefs.  I will believe in the magic and relish in her belief  in the magic of the #Leprechaun.   May your days be filled with the simple pleasures of life seen through the eyes of your child.  May the magic of the #Leprechaun fill your home with joy.  All of my best, Dyan

This years #Leprechaun.
She was so excited to wake and see if the #Leprechaun ate his gold coin from last night and to see if he turned the toilets green and if the #Leprechaun left her any treats.  
This year she somehow managed to remember that she leaves actual coins for the Leprechaun and he leaves her a chocolate gold coin a day (every morning) in exchange for her coin (that she makes a wish with every night).  I told her I didn't remember it that way, but she insisted and she is having so much fun making wishes I couldn't resist playing a long. 

As she feel asleep last night we talked about the past couple years of St Pattys day, what it means and what the #Leprechaun did in our home.   It was fun to relive the memories with her, as she started to drift off to sleep, she wondered what this year would bring.  

#St.PattricksDay PicturesI decided not to go too crazy and found a green lunch bag, drew a lucky shamrock on it and put a bottle of green bubbles, green mints and gold coins in it for her.  Much, much simpler than years past.   She was delighted as the mints are her new favorite candy.  

She checked all the toilets (to see if they were green), it was a fun way to start her day, not to mention to get her out of bed on time and ready for school.  
On our way leaving our neighborhood, she noticed a Shamrock Farms delivery truck pass by us and said "Mom, it is going to be a lucky day!"  I love the fact that she is so positive, so observant and so reminiscent of my mother, who always believed in old wives tales and luck! May the luck of the #Leprechaun be with you this St. Pattys day!  
May all your wishes and rainbow dreams come true!  
All of my best,  Dyan
