It was a fabulous St. Patrick's Day, except....
the leprechaun forgot to bring Lucky Charms.
He brought chocolate kisses instead, green--of course.
But he didn't color anything green. Or leave any coins.
His note had an oddly familiar look to it.
So familiar, in fact, that Maddie recognized the handwriting.
At the age of 9 3/4, there were tears.
Devastating news really--since she put it all together--
the leprechaun, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and.....SANTA. Oh my.
Now that she has figured out her new big girl role in the whole thing,
there have been a lot of special winks.
And a special shopping trip tomorrow morning.
Mommy and her big girl have some baskets to prepare for the weekend.
