My father was very proud to be Irish. I mean.....Marie, Danny, Patty, and Colleen (which means 'Irish girl') kind of gave that away. Wearing green was mandatory on St. Patrick's day. Even for my non-Irish mother. I recall several St. Patrick's Day parties at the Corbett house. DJ...right in the living room. Green, green, everywhere. I'm ashamed to admit that I'm not a big fan of Irish food. Corn beef and cabbage, fresh ham, split pea soup-it's all gross to me. But I had to eat it here and there growing up.
Anyway, my Mom came over with these 'little green' items for Bella. This is her first gift. We haven't bought her anything yet. She is actually due 2 days after St. Patrick's Day, but I am thinking she may come a little early. They took a Alex a week early because of how fast I have my babies. If not, she can wear it in the hospital. I love that my mother is always still thinking about my father, and what he would want for his grandchildren.
