Ahhhhh it's time for Valentine's! Not just your pop out the box and tear on the fold, but something fun.....something with some POP!
Now would be a good time to mention that my youngest child is 15 and has NO desire for Mom to make any Valentines.......POP or not! But..............my God Daughter is 7 and she is game for it and has the enthusiasm to get me cutting and ribbon curling on a Saturday!!
We decided on pencils because her class has the "write" stuff.......of course! and wanted to give some candy too............I mean, pencils are great but 7 year olds want SUGAR!! (this is sooo up my alley!)
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! And love the SHE loves it. And I hope that she will remember these fun "extras" that are my pleasure to share with her. I think LOVE is in the details. With every bow tied I thought to myself...."oh this is cute....she's gonna love taking these to school" and as I packed them up I put a Lil bit of me in that bag.......she won't want me to help make things for her or go places with her forever (I know...my oldest daughter is 27.....no Valentine Classroom Kits for her either) but it is nothing like being special to someone. To know that on top of all of the love you get from your parents someone else is gonna be there to shake a little sparkle on you too! Thats why I am up on a Saturday night making bows............that is why!
