Growing up, St. Patrick’s Day was always very stressful for me. If we didn’t wear green, we’d get pinched at school. If we didn’t wear orange, we’d get pinched at home. See? Stressful…AND colorful. (I wore a lot of rainbow shirts in March. Luckily, those were very popular in the late 1900s.)
Honestly, I think it’s a silly tradition (yes, I said it out loud!), but it is what it is.
Today, Claire wanted to wear pink and purple and didn’t want to get pinched, so I did this:

…and her great-grandmothers would be proud.
