Please enjoy this post from last March. The best part is my daughter changed the tradition again this year...lol....more on that later. In the meantime, enjoy creating memories with your child that you both will treasure for years to come! All of my best, Dyan
We are keeping up with holiday traditions this year. My daughter decided that she wanted to put out her special rainbow craft she made in preschool and every night we need to put out a gold coin for the #Leprechaun, make a wish and leave it for the #Leprechaun to eat.....she said we did that last year, I don't remember making St Patricks Day so involved, but she has insisted upon it.
So, that is what we have done every night before she goes to bed, we take a gold coin and set it next to her special rainbow, she closes her eyes and makes a wish. Really and truly a precious moment to experience!!
Yes, it is a lot of work to remember to open the coin at night (or morning) if I forget the night before, and dispose of the candy, but it is worth it. She loves the idea of putting out a coin and making a wish and hoping for that #Leprechaunmagic!
This one might not be for you, but I can't help playing a long. For many reasons,...she believes in the magic, it is exciting for her to do every night and it is something she looks forward to every evening. But, the most important reason of all for me, is I know these moments of believing in the fairy tales of life (Santa, the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny) will soon be coming to pass. So yes, I will go along with her and cherish each and every second of these childhood beliefs. I will believe in the magic and relish in her belief in the magic of the #Leprechaun. May your days be filled with the simple pleasures of life seen through the eyes of your child. May the magic of the #Leprechaun fill your home with joy. All of my best, Dyan
