It has been so long since I have taken the opportunity to sit down and read over the blogs of many friends and since it happens to be the end of February I am noticing many posts about the many ways they all celebrated Valentines Day. Oh my gosh, everyone, you are hard working and very adorable! What a lot of work people go to to celebrate their love for their kids and friends. And I thought back....what did I do for Valentines Day? Uh, pretty much nothing. Oh no wait, I totally did something.
There. Heart-shaped pancakes complete with pink food coloring. See, I did something! Oh yeah, I also bought several boxes of "fun dip valentines" for the kids to write their names on before handing them out at school. It was very upper-crust, I'll tell you.
I felt kinda bad, actually. I mean, it some ways it felt good to just let go of staying up until 2am making something homemade, that was fine. Very liberating. But I did have an idea to write each of my children a love letter about how special they are and have it on their plates in the morning. Yeah, didn't happen. (Same week as Teacher Appreciation Week.) But guess what. My kids were absolutely delighted with the pancakes. Thrilled. They thought it was the coolest thing, hooray for me, and my kids are not allowed to read any of your blog posts about Valentine's Day!
