Riley and his pappey

In school for Saint Patrick’s Day, Riley was asked to write an essay about what he would do with a pot of gold.  His essay is below:


And in case you’re wondering.  He doesn’t want a Pappy – he wants a puppy.  He’s perfectly content with his two Mammas.

And it melts my heart that his first response was to share some with homeless people.  Of course, he’s making sure that there’s plenty for his swimming pool and banana split.  But still.  He’s 7 and way more socially conscious than I was at that age.

    What would you have done with a pot of gold when you were seven?

    You know what? I’ve thought about this, and I decided that I would have counted it. That’s all. Just counted it over and over again. Maybe I would have made up a song about having a pot of gold. And I would have sung it while counting.

    You totally would have just counted it…over and over (until you ran out as your sisters swiped one here and one there).
