If any of you moms and dads out there need a little inspiration to keep your kids in line between the departure of the Elf on the Shelf and the arrival of the Easter Bunny, look no further than “Parents of the Year,” every year, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.
Neil and David are well-known for their legend…wait for it…ary Halloween photo shoots with their now 6-year-old twins, Harper and Gideon, and they recently threw a Chopped-themed play date for the kids and their friends. Well, Neil and David could have outdone themselves, sharing their family’s adorable St. Patrick’s Day tradition, which went a bit awry this year.
Each year, the Harris/Burtka kids leave traps for the leprechauns that visit their house on March 17, hoping to capture them for the gifts they receive upon their release. The kids decided to flip the script this year and leave gifts for the leprechauns, in an attempt to gain presents for their kindness. Neil documented the whole thing on his Instagram, starting with the spread the kids left for the leprechauns. NPH posted a photo of mushrooms, potatoes, beer and whiskey, accompanied by a video of the kids, in full St. Patrick’s garb, declaring their devotion and affection for the magical creatures.

Preparing for tomorrow morning's St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun encounter (hopefully). This year Harper & Harper are offering gifts instead of traps. Fingers crossed that this time tomorrow – we will have us a LEPRECHAUN, y'all! #potatoes #mushrooms #beer #whiskey #hopes #dreams

In the video, Gideon promised he’d treat the visitors well, adding, “We’ll keep you away from our dogs.” Gideon promised bed making and room service, and, of course, “potatoes and mushrooms and beer every day if you want.” Gideon, a boy after my own heart, helpfully chimed in, “And whiskey.” Gideon asked for a gold coin per day in exchange for a potato and Gideon proclaimed, “We love you!”

This is the video Harper and Gideon made for the Leprechauns, a hopeful plea for guardianship and gold coins. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well, the mischievous leprechauns opted for tricks, not treats, “trashing” the home bu strewing toilet paper all over the place, upending furniture and, for the “mic drop” moment, spelling out the word “NEVER” on the floor in potatoes. NPH posted a photo of two very unhappy kids, with a caption describing the destruction.

What the flip?!? The Leprechauns trashed our house. Gideon and Harper were far from pleased by all this Irish mischief. Toilet paper everywhere. Cushions upended. Dining room chairs in a pile. iPad taped to the chandelier. Whiskey drank. The rapscallions wrote their response to the kids' video in potatoes. See for yourself! #begosh #begorrah

This is too adorable, isn’t it? Neil and David are truly great parents, and I love the things they do for their kids. I wonder what happens when they lose their teeth? The Tooth Fairy that visits that house must be intense.
