Happy Snake-Banishing Day From BuboBlog

This was our first St. Patrick's Day in New York, and I had hoped to bring the kids to the parade. But considering it took place during nap time (and a snowstorm), we figured it was a little ambitious this year.

Green goes with everything.

We did talk to the kids a bit about their Irish heritage and why we celebrate St. Patrick's Day (so they don't just think it's an excuse for grown-ups to drink fizzy stuff and talk in their loud voices).

"St. Patrick got rid of the snakes in Ireland," Kelly said.

"Right," I said. "He led them into the water with a flute."

"That was the Pied Piper."

"So how'd he do it then?"

"We can Google this later."

(Glad we're not home-schooling these tykes.)
