To Catch a Leprechaun

If your outside on a sunny St. Patrick's Day...


And you catch a glimpse of something tiny dressed in green...


And the sun shining through his hair reflects glints of red...

(I'm not kidding. I didn't edit his hair color. He's not a red-head - but the sun totally turns it red.)

The chances are...


...it could be a leprechaun.


Now you want to be smart - because you know what they say about leprechauns...
They are jokesters....


...always on the go...


And they are fast...


Very, very fast...


They are almost impossible to catch...


And sometimes when you think you've caught them...


They still manage to disappear...

But if you do manage to chase one into surrender...


Make sure you take a picture to show your friends...because they won't believe you unless you have proof.


You'll want to know where he's hidden his pot of gold.
But he won't tell you...


So...you'll have to tickle him into telling you...


And when he can't take the torture - he'll say if you let him go, he'll show you were his gold is...


But don't trust him...


'Cause he's just going to try to run away again...


But if you catch him again and look closer...and you happen to notice that he doesn't have a beard like a leprechaun...


And come to think of it...he doesn't seem like the type who would want to trick you...


Then you might just come to realize...


...that he's nothing more than a little boy...


...trying to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!


Happy St. Patty's Day
from our family to yours!

Hi,
You don't know me, but I found your blog on babycenter. My son has SB L4-L5 and is three months old. He had fetal surgery. I am so glad I found your blog because your son has given me so much hope for my son's future. I love the pictures and I teared up when I saw how great he is doing. I would love to talk further with you and learn about some of your experiences. Email me if you would like or have the time. Your blog made me have a really good day during a bad week. Thanks!
