"Come on, Keaton. Wake up! I've got your green shirt today for St. Patrick's Day."
Keaton instantly perks up and practically yells out "We have a big problem, MOM!"
"Those leprechauns are really sneaky! They are going to come into our class and mess it up. There are only three ways to catch them; with a net, your hands, and, uh...can't remember the last one. But they sleep during the day, and they are as fast as lightning! Today is going to be a tricky day!"
So finally, I discover the secret to my messy house! It has never been those dang kids of mine! It's those sneaky "fast as lightning" leprechauns that are making my job more difficult than it needs to be.
Tell me again the ways you can catch a leprechaun?
Oh, and Kolby now has a new thing on his Christmas wish list. A rainbow. Never mind being obvious and asking for the gold at the end of it. Kolby is more clever. He'll just take the whole rainbow and everything that comes attached to it. I tell myself, good luck getting that present!
