So here are the Valentines I did for the kids this year. Believe it or not, this is easier for me than buying a box at the store, making the kids write all the names on them, figuring out how to affix some candy to them, etc.
Plus, they're cute & fun.
I don't know if I'll be able to get JBird to do it again (is 5th grade too old for this?) but he says all the kids in his class loved it this year. TBone's was a hit and, of course, who could resist Beebee's? I was entirely deflated, however, when Beebs returned home from school on Thursday (the day of the Valentine's Day festivities) with ALL of her Valentines still in her bag. She didn't hand any of them out! Now, who do I blame here... her for not listening to direction/not hearing the directions or the teachers for not making sure all the kids went around and passed theirs out?? She just turned FOUR fhs. It was the most annoying thing that had happened to me all week and, if you read my last post, you know I had been highly annoyed all week. So we gave some to the neighbors and I'm trying to decide if I should send them in on the next school day for the kids. I waffle between wanting the parents to see how cute they are and not wanting the parents to think I'm a total flake/late Valentine maker. I also don't want to be stuck with 20 of these things either. Oh my trials!! ::repeating "What doesn't kill me will only make me stronger" while rocking back & forth::
Now, help me translate this Valentine TBone got from a cute girl in his class named Sam.
Stalker in training?
