The trap was set, perfectly balanced with a skewer, and notes that read "Dear Leprechaun, push stick backwards so dog doesn't get you." A plan that took hours to devise, scheming behind closed doors, the art room off limits to two-year-olds who could ruin their perfect plan. A homemade doughnut dipped in green glaze was the perfect lure, they just knew it.
More surprises! My kids came in at 10:19 p.m. March 16th because they were all in knots with excitement and had apparently been checking the trap every few minutes. And so life goes, most of the fun of St. Patrick's day 2011 is already over. Although I'm pretty sure no one else is bringing a real life leprechaun vest for show-and-tell.
