Eat Green Food

Happy St. Patrick’s Day. The twins almost had a conniption fit (is that a word? is that how you spell it?) when we couldn’t locate a SECOND green dress in the closet today.

I am glad I didn’t mention to them yet the Irish-ish tradition of dying things green and eating them. Because of this:

Me (to twin 1): Charlotte’s Web was named Number 1 book for kids.

Twin 1: Oh! We just read that in school! It is GREAT!

Me: There were lots of books on the list we’ve read. Like ‘Green Eggs and Ham.”

Twin 2: Oh, boy! I don’t ever want to read that book again. It’s all “green eggs and ham” all day long every Dr. Seuss day. Bleh! <SIGH>.

So I think we’ll wait till next year to introduce them to the minty Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s and dyed green bagels.

Do you eat green food on St. Paddy’s day?
