Kiss Me I’m Irish..

St. Patrick’s Day is here, and it was this holiday when I realize that I have been prepping for a child my whole life.  Well at least for the last 11 years.

Pretty soon this high chair will have three occupants...

 Last night as I was laying out R’s clothes for work; and making sure that he was appropriately dressed for St. Patrick’s day with as much green as he would accept, I realized I’m going to be one of those holiday parents.

It was in that moment of coordinating his green sweater with his green checked shirt, that I became aware that I have been coordinating him for the holidays since the beginning of our relationship.  Red and pink on Valentine’s Day, Orange and black on Halloween (he refuses to wear a costume.. I’ve tried), I’ve even made a hideous Christmas sweater complete with flashing lights.  Luckily he is a good sport, or just simply doesn’t care what I am sending him out of the house wearing.

Just think of the fun I am going to have with a child.  Baking for every holiday and event.  I need a calendar… and what would one bake for Arbour Day, leaf cookies?

R’s Mom used to famously decorate the house for every day with a designation, hanging banners in the window for the neighbourhood (Father’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s, Easter..).  We used to laugh, but some how I have morphed into “that” person.  You know what.. I’m o.k with it.

I was recently looking through holiday recipes and came across the website thepioneerwoman.com and there are so many great recipes on here.  I especially liked the look of these Irish Hills Cupcakes.  Mmmm so good.

Days like today are about having fun, celebrating the moments and being a kid.  So throw on that green sweater, eat your cupcakes… and Kiss Me I’m Irish!
