Since we’ve been married, and even had two kids, I’ve never made a big deal about holidays. Christmas and birthdays are always fun occasions and I definitely make an effort on those days, but all those other littler holidays just come and go without more than a mention of them.
But now that Peanut is nearly three, he’s starting to understand and get excited about holidays, so I’m mustering up all my mom skills and trying hard to make these little holidays a special occasion. I want to be that kind of mom, it’s just turns out that it’s a lot of effort.
So for St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday we all wore green (Philip laid out a yellow tie for church the night before and got a scolding — you can’t wear a yellow tie on St. Patrick’s Day!), I made spinach and artichoke melts (green!) and green fruit kabobs (kiwi, green grapes and green apples) for dinner, and we had rainbow jello cups for dessert. We even did a little rainbow craft inspired by my sister.
Now Easter is just around the corner…just thinking about doing a bunch of fun things makes me tired, but I am determined to do better! Wish me luck.
