Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and...

Liam the Leprechaun?  It seems on St. Patrick's Day my eldest daughter received a visit from a Leprechaun named Liam who created a bit of mayhem in their classroom.

For whatever reason, she decided to write him a letter that night and leave it for him at our house.  

Apparently, he's taking requests and filling orders.  I had to explain that Leprechauns don't leave you gifts, they just leave you a mess.  (Or so it seems?  I'm not sure they would've been able to distinguish Liam's mess from our own had Liam visited our house on St. Patrick's Day Eve.)

I have a hard enough time keeping up with all these lies and explanations that we tell our kids without having to come up with new characters to drop by our house!

Too Funny! Hey it was worth a shot, right? Fiona was very upset that they were not actually able to catch that rascally Leprauchan at her preschool!
