Happy St Patrick's Day!  
Hee! So Rugrat brought home the leprechaun trap he made at school. It's a shoebox with green paper taped on it, with a hole cut in the top. And there's a sign he wrote and taped above the hole,it says (Lack of spelling included for your amusement):

"Hi leprchan bad leprechans gow her" (go here) and there's an arrow pointing to the hole.

The box is about an inch deep in gold glitter to LURE the leprechaun in, by the way. THE GLITTER IS EVERYWHERE

Awww, cute!

Also, there's a reason glitter is referred to as the herpes of the craft world. It gets everywhere and is impossible to ever get rid of again (or so it seems.)

oh yes, I was filled with a great sense of DOOOM when I saw that box heading my way, since there was already glitter on it. I'll probably be finding it for quite a while to come!

You've read the story of my Urchin and the blue glitter right? I think my vacuum still sparkles blue in some angles...and it's been almost a year since that event. And...there is still blue glitter in the keyboard I'm using right now.

yep, that stuff is pernicious. I may never get it out of my house again!

Awww, that is seriously classic! Get some pictures - especially if he actually catches one!

sadly, there were no leprechauns stupid enough to jump into a hole and not find their way out again! :D

Don't you adore their spelling! I'm totally in love the way they sound the words out and come up with the most creative spellings.

Enjoy the glitter and hope those leprchans leave some gold :)

omg the spelling! it's hilarious. "gow" for "go" didn't even make sense to me at first, then he reminded me that you "mow" the grass, so that's where it came from!

The other night he found an error in a Winnie-the-Pooh activity thing we have - It's a look and find, and one of the questions is to count the birds in the picture. There are little blue birds flying around, so it's meant as an easy counting thing. And the answer's given as six - which is how many little birds there are. But he pointed out that Owl was in the picture, too, so there's actually SEVEN birds. MY SON IS A GENIUS. :DD

Of course he is! And I'm sure in more ways than just math and reading too - as it should be :)

Good luck with that. Glitter does not like to go away. I'm sure that teacher has lots of parents wondering what she was thinking. Though the idea is cute.

yeah, no kidding. I discovered glitter on the front passenger seat of my car this morning, even though the box was in the back seat.

I think it breeds...
