St. Patricks day anecdote

This is my favorite St. Patrick's Day anecdote:

When Ashlynn was 3, I was discussing what St. Patricks Day was all about. I explained that leprechauns came from Ireland, so they were Irish. Then I proceeded to tell her that her ancestors came from Ireland, so she was Irish, too. She replied, quite indignantly, "No! I don't want to be Irish! I just just want to be Selfish!"

This picture was taken in Kindergarten.

I loved that, too! I'm so glad you posted it. I've never seen the picture.

Cute - we're still trying to convince Spencer that Leprechauns aren't scary. (He has this irrational fear...)

That girl is more Irish than she can ever guess- She looks and acts like it too!
