Conversation about Leprechauns with Kyle

Yesterday, the boys school was letting the kids dress down (ie no uniforms) to celebrate St. Patrick's day. So, Kevin let the boys wear and bring all kinds of silly St. Paddy's day stuff to school. The boys learned about St. Patrick and also about leprechauns. You know all the silly little tidbits we all leprechauns are really fast, and like to play tricks and leave pots of gold at the end of rainbows. I guess they also learned that leprechauns are small.

I picked the boys up from school yesterday and Kyle tells me all about his day and how he learned about all the silly things leprechauns do and that the leprechauns did silly stuff in his classroom while they were out playing. He then asks me, "mama, are leprechauns real?"

I ask him back if he is thinks Santa, Easter Bunny, etc. are real.

He says yes, he thinks they are real.

Then I say, well leprechauns are like that...they are magic just like Santa, the Easter Bunny, etc.

Kyle then says with a quite disbelieving voice, "but leprechauns are tiny and I do not think tiny people are real."

At that point I just gave up...of course after laughing.
