Chinese New Year was fifteen days long, giving me a convenient excuse for my tardiness in posting. Valentines Day, one day. No built-in excuse. I’m just late. Sorry!
Valentines Day started early with a party at preschool. Nothing like a sugar rush at ten in the morning, right? Molly was thrilled to wear her pink and red tutu from Aunt Shell. She picked her entire outfit right down to the hair pretties. Obviously, she has been thinking about this for a while!
screamed at urged me to drive faster the whole way home. Obviously she was on a mission. And I think the look of joy upon opening her Valentines explains why.I miss the pure joy of childhood. They celebrate all of the little moments in life with such passion. I guess when you are four, a big bucket-o-candy is not a little moment!
The celebrating continued in the evening, after gymnastics and dinner. This time, more goodies provided by Mom and Dad.
First thing out was the giant pencil. I always loved the giant pencils when I was growing up. Unfortunately they didn’t fit into the pencil sharpener so never lasted all that long. This one came with its own giant sharpener, Sure, now that I am grown up, they get smart and attach a giant sharpener.
Happy Valentines Day to My Sweet Little Valentine!
