St. Patrick’s Day in years past was either celebrated mildly or not at all in my household, despite our Irish heritage. It just wasn’t that big of a deal. We might have worn some green, drank some green beer and that would have been about it.
St. Patrick’s Day now is and will always be for me a momentous day because it is the day that Rex entered the world. It will always be first and foremost his birthday and then St. Patrick’s Day. It will be a day of raucous celebration or at least a lot of green icing and shamrocks. It will be the day that we serenade our little shamrock with the obligatory song and dress him in green. It will be the day that I will be so amazed that we finally reached.
