Yes…Jack is still Irish and I’m not

Or am I?

When I was a kid, St. Patrick’s Day always meant something, because I would wear green to school, and get green mashed potatoes and cupcakes, and wear pins that said “kiss me I’m Irish”, even though I wasn’t, and all that fun stuff. 

Now that I’m older, and not even 1%  Irish, it’s a holiday that kind of sneaks up on me and goes right past. I know a lot of Irish people, and my son is Irish too, but that usually doesn’t help me remember to wear green ha ha.

Me: Jack, go change your shirt. Put on the green one.

Jack: Why? No one’s going to care.

Me: you’ll care. And I’ll care. And Saint Patrick will care. Go pick out a green shirt because you’re Irish.

Jack: do we have any of those pins that say kiss me I’m Irish?

Me: no I don’t think we do, and even if we did, I wouldn’t know where they are.

Jack: ( calling from upstairs ) I don’t know which shirt is green!

I forget sometimes that he is colorblind.

Me: it’s the long sleeve shirt that’s farther over to the right in the… Oh forget it I’ll come up and show you.

Jack: is it this one? (He found the right one!)

Me: yeah that’s it! Now you look like my little Irish boy. That mixed with German. Explains a lot.

Jack: what was that?

Me: oh nothing…

And, boy does that explain a lot! Ha ha. Anyone else out there a mix of Irish and German, or have a child or spouse with that combo? Let me know what you think 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Here’s Moca chewing something green ha ha.

  1. Believe it or not… your buddy Evan is Irish & German… and Russian, Spanish, Polish, Italian. We eat well, drink well, can have bouts of passion and depression…
