Bronwyn participated in her first-ever Valentine’s day party today. She was so proud and happy to show off all of her little valentines and lollipops and candy kisses tonight. The brown paper lunch bag with her name written across the front brought back memories of my grade school valentine exchanges. Close to thirty odd years ago. Ouch.
Findley came home with an enormous envelope jammed with valentines and candies. Sadly, not one little Rice Krispies heart came back. When I asked if there were any leftovers, Findley was quick to announce that they were all gone and then offered me his. The boy’s sweetness can melt my heart some days.
It’s hard to maintain my negative outlook when the kids pour so much innocent joy into every holiday. Even the Hallmark ones.
