St. Paddy’s Day
We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day today with lots of green clothes, several pinches (despite the aforementioned green clothing), green milk, green oatmeal, kiwis, pears, apples and corned beef and cabbage. Oh and snow. You can’t have St. Patrick’s day without snow right? The snow didn’t last long but it made our adventure to Target kind of interesting and cold.
Is it me or could Henry totally pass for a leprechaun? I know he’s missing the red hair and beard, but that devilish grin of his is definitely making up for it.
Adelaide was wearing green at one point today, but the whole potty-training thing makes for a lot of clothes-changing. I feel like 90% of my laundry these days is comprised of toddler-sized pants and underwear.
I can’t not include a picture of William… but this picture is… interesting. William will only smile for me with his lips closed and eyes shut. It’s a phase.
We got our little box of caterpillars in the mail today. They are so tiny! We’ve been studying metamorphosis and the life cycle of butterflies and frogs. I had planned on getting a tadpole kit as well, thinking I could just release the frog into the wild once it grew up, but then I did some more research and found that the frogs that are shipped are dangerous to the indigenous frog population and should be kept as pets. I quickly vetoed that one. I have absolutely no desire to keep a frog as a pet, especially one that is supposed to live 500 million years. (I might be exaggerating a bit.) We watched some videos and read books on frogs instead.
Butterflies I can handle.
