Green Eggs and Toilets

I try to be a good mom.

Most days I fall short.

I have good intentions.

Most of the time I forget things.

Especially holidays that are less significant than Christmas.

Like St. Patrick's Day.

Today I remembered.

My kids woke up to pancakes of the green variety.

Their eggs were also a putrid shade.

They had green candy and jelly beans on the table.

And wouldn't you know it?

Some little leprechaun turned all our toilet water green.

My kids were so excited.

Cole told everyone at preschool.

And carpool.

Who knew this one little item could bring so much joy?

In case you haven't already...go add a few drops to your dinner.

Or your toilet water.

You. are. welcome.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Oh man, I totally need to do that to the toiley next year. Ben would LOVE it!

And did you wear green too? ; )

What a great idea! I will definitely have to try that next year with Austin.
And, I am quite sure you are downplaying your mommy greatness.

well I thought I was smart! We had green eggs and ham, and rice crispy treats with green sprinkles, but I would have never thought about putting food color in the toilet!

Green toilet water is an awesome idea! I will have to remember that one! You are a really fun mom!

My kids freak out and don't want to pee when the toilet has just been cleaned and has that blue stuff in it. They might get seriously disturbed by green. In other words, thanks for the great idea! ;)
