I forgot to wear green myself; have two of 9 kids in green Yesterday was a rough one and I had some issues last night getting to bed late and woke up well after 6 this morning with two alarms going off so not a good start for me

Happy St Patricks Day!

Here it's not really a holiday that is noticed.
No one wears green and it is mostly just something mentioned on the calendar but that seems to be about it.

Maybe we don't have many people of Irish descent around here *shrugs*

I'm of Irish descent and am not feeling it today.

Technically, it is a remembrance of death so.....

My husband did make the stew, though.

I usually do, too. We are expecting severe weather. The birds are quiet and no squirrels to be found. It is super foggy, raining and soggy wet. It is pretty creepy feeling here. I have a bag packed to hit the basement ready. Eyes to the skies.

Maybe we will celebrate on Friday. Friday is supposed to be beautiful.

Opposite here.
I avoid ANY reason the DCK's or parents think we should celebrate.

Every time there is any kind of celebration, the kids think they "deserve" a gift/treat or some type of reward and the parents think it's leverage to get their kids to do X or Y or that it's something they build up to their kids about what's going down at daycare for the day.

ie: a way for them to get out of having to do anything parent related.

Drop and RUN!

Ever since my last term, the remaining parents have been SUPER appreciative over everything. Guess word travels fast when most of them work together
