Catching Leprechauns

"Mama," my seven-year-old son said.  "I'm going to go catch a leprechaun."

"Oh yeah?' I asked.  "With what?"

"With a butterfly net."

Of course.

"Where are you going to find a leprechaun?"  I asked.

"In the woods.  I know there's one back there."

"Is that so?" I said. 

"Yep.  Finding a pot of gold would be good too, wouldn't it?"


So now my boy is out there trying to catch a leprechaun with a butterfly net.  I'm going to go join him, because finding a pot of gold sounds like a real good thing.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  


  1. Could someone please let me know if the word verification is still on? I thought I turned it off, but I'm not sure if it is. Thanks!

  2. I hope it's a big pot of gold and don't let the leprechaun trick you.

    1. Yeah. Definitely have to watch out for those tricky leprechauns!

  3. I always enjoy the humor here. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Then I see that you already have one - have another!

  4. Aww, I certainly hope he caught his leprechaun :) I really enjoyed visiting your blog, especially seeing you are from Ohio; my home state!

  5. So did he catch one?

    And no, there is no word verification :-)

    1. No luck this year. Maybe next year! Thanks for confirming that word verification is off. I appreciate it!
