Unrelated to the rest of this post - we bought a new couch! So I listed our old one on Craigslist, thinking it might take a week or so to sell. To my surprise someone bought it outright the next day (last Wednesday). Call it poor planning on my part, because our new couch won't be here until THIS Friday. So...this post brought to you by the living room floor! I'm just such a planner, you know?
We are deep in preparations for another little 'love mission' this year, and oh yes...there will be sprinkles! Lots of SPRINKLES! We have had our house a valentine'd up for about two weeks now, and we have been focusing on a LOT of Valentine crafts. Nothing big, but give a two year old some pink paper and a glue stick and I call that a craft!
As I've said before, I don't think that holidays have to be a huge production, but I do think it is important to create experiences for children enjoy and remember. We only get one shot at this parenting gig, and I want them to remember how they used to count the hearts hung around the house and how we would deliver some smiles on Valentine's day.
