Henry came home from preschool today with a bag of Valentine's and some candy.It was at that moment that I panicked that I didn't even think to send Henry to school with Valentine's for every kid. What kind of a Mother am I? He had all these tacky pop culture little Valentines with stuff like the Backyardigans, Barbie,Power Rangers etc. They were signed by kids but then I looked closely and saw that some said "from Henry" and not in his handwriting. It was then that I realized that the school had provided all the Valentines and they had written them all out together today in school. I wasn't a failure as a Mother (at least in this instance.). Phew!
Then we opened the Valentine's from Grandma Fran and me and Nick. The gorging began.
Max spit out about half of it and said some was "gross".They were very generous and shared their chocolate with me.
Then we went outside and played in the garden. It was another one of the beautiful days in February that we often get. Mild and warm and sunny.
And just in case you thought computers were bad for your kids,...Max insisted on eating a carrot when we found this "In the Garden" cartoon on youtube. This child rarely eats a vegetable but here he is happily gnawing on a raw carrot because he was watching it over and over on this little video.
Happy Valentine's Day!
