Saint Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

When we found out that we were pregnant with our daughter Elizabeth her official due date was March 19. But instead of making it to that date, I went into labor in the evening of March 16th and started praying that she was born that day and NOT on Saint Patrick’s Day. Everything was progressing well until my water broke and that is when things went south quickly. Her heartbeat started dropping, and the Doctors and nurses started scrambling around. It was quickly determined that she was breech and that they would be performing an emergency c-section. I told them to hurry because she had to be born by midnight because I didn’t want her to be a Saint Patrick’s Day baby but she, the doctors and of course God had something else in mind. By the time the team got there and was ready it was well after midnight and I had to face the music that she would in fact be a Saint Patrick’s Day baby whether I liked it or not.

Through the years I still didn’t really “love” that she was born on a holiday, but have come to love the fact because it meant super fun holiday parties and of course her love of green foods was never hidden. If I had a dollar for every birthday that I made green cupcakes, I would be a rich woman. Some years they did look better than others but they were always delicious regardless of how they looked.
