When I was super cool and single, St. Patrick's Day was my all-time favorite drinking holiday. Of course, I've toned it down since having kids. Now, I put off my festive Guinness until after nap time. You too can join in on the St. Patrick's Day fun by dressing your kids up in ridiculous costumes.

As a mom who is, ahem, not super cool and single, there's nothing I find more adorable than kids in costume. Maybe I don't get out much, or maybe these kids really are that cute. To get you in the Irish spirit, here are 12 irresistible lads and lasses dressed up for St. Patrick's Day.
