Leprechaun Picnic


 On St. Patrick's Day during Mercedes' nap, I set up this picnic for her on the couch. Green blanket, Lucky Charms, green milk and green greek yogurt, with chocolate gold coins on the side. When she woke up, I told her a Leprechaun had been eating his snack in our house and left his gold behind (we've been talking about how Leprechauns aren't real, but it's fun to pretend that they are).


 She thought the picnic was great, but when she took a break to go potty...


She found that a leprechaun had used her potty to go pee pee. Well this REALLY freaked her out and she burst out crying, poor kid. I spent about 10 minutes explaining to her that I'd dyed some water and put it in her potty just to pretend that a leprechaun had been there. She did not find this amusing. Mommy fail...oops! Maybe next year she will find the humor in it. =-)
