Alan Lawrence, the creative mind, graphic designer and superdad behind That Dad Blog, is at it again. In the past he’s shown us how kids with Down syndrome, like his son Wil, have the power of flight and that Elves on Shelves have the capability of actually being cute. This time he’s making mischief with an errant leprechaun just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
The father of six is a talented photographer and graphic designer who has delighted the Internet before with his gorgeous photos of his son Wil and his #RockTheElf photo series that features his youngest son as a real-life Elf on the Shelf. Perhaps his elfin days are behind him, though, because recently some of Lawrence’s Facebook posts have showcased a mythological creature that’s a little more, shall we say, seasonal?
These aren’t your typical kid pictures that clog up your news feed with cute but monotonous photos of your friends’ little ones. These are next-level pictures that showcase how freaking adorable the Lawrence kids are and how talented their dad is with a camera and Photoshop.
With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, you’ve probably already seen a ton of pictures and posts that feature parents fashioning leprechaun traps for little ones to capture and bribe the little men of Irish folklore into giving them treats and trinkets on the morning of March 17. Well, there’s no word on whether Lawrence set a trap for this little sidhe, who apparently just showed up one day, ready to kick shins and take names:
He’s awfully cute, but that doesn’t mean he won’t resort to the usual trickery of his bearded brethren when he gets the chance…
And cute clearly doesn’t get the laundry done!
And while having a leprechaun around the house can clearly be very messy, it also appears to be loads of adorable fun. It’s clear the Lawrence family cares very much for one another, and everyone brings something special to the table, whether it’s Mom’s handiness with a sewing machine (we mean, check out the details on that teeny little waistcoat!):
Or Dad’s talent with a camera or the kids who are blessed with the gift of flight or of being really, really ridiculously good-looking. Mostly, it looks like no matter the occasion, the Lawrence family loves to laugh with one another, and that’s definitely worth its weight in gold.
Maith thú, Lawrences! This one will keep us laughing long after St. Pat’s comes and goes.
