Valentine's Day Observed: edited
All week Andrew has been working on his Valentines. He must have cut out 30 hearts which we've mailed to friends and relatives and assembled the rest for his class. One night while we were folding and cutting papers the Fresh Direct guy came with our groceries. Andrew rushed to the door to tell him that we were making Valentines and that Valentine's Day is coming and that we are getting ready for Valentine's Day! So, when I say that I'm not sure who is more excited about Valentine's Day, I'm serious. Andrew and I are in a dead heat.
Today I dressed him in red, put his cookies and Valentines and flowers for his teachers in a bag and we headed off to school giddy with excitement. I am so excited for him to give out his treats and get cards from his classmates and come home with stories to tell and treasures to share.
This is his first school-y Valentine's and I think that is why I am particularly excited. I am curious to see if there is an added dose of connections with friends and social interactions today. I have my hopes that maybe today he will learn some of the names of the kids in his class and come home with stories about them. It seems like a good day for it to me.
And if it doesn't happen, that's a-ok. It will come in time. But a mama can hope, right? ;)
These are the Valentines I sent out this year. Not nearly as cute as Andrew's, I must say. But, a more grown up edition. Check back on Sunday to see Andrew's and Isaac's Valentines! You won't want to miss it!
Hooray!!! Best Valentine's Day ever!
