I’m sure you noticed that Valentine’s Day was on a TUESDAY this year… Just like Halloween was on a MONDAY. (We really need to speak to someone about this- This can never, ever happen again!)
ANYWAY, even with plans for a very calm craft and valentines saved for the very end of the day (with just a lone cookie and juice box…) it was MADNESS. Complete and utter madness. I think my little sweeties lost their minds. I have THAT group this year. They are sweet. Individually, they are very endearing children… but together… they are… A LOT… just A LOT. But they were happy. Hopefully they made a memory. (My husband and I often have to remind each other that “Making memories isn’t easy!” – This is the family motto that makes us smile when we are carrying multiple children through a 100 degree parking lot at the end of a crazy-long day somewhere “magical” 😉 )
Speaking of magic, this is the valentine-gram that one of my twins sent to his brother at school on Tuesday.
The valentine-grams are purchased the week before Valentine’s Day. The note and a treat are sent to anyone in the school. So, this was delivered to his classroom by a PTA volunteer. His teacher stopped passing them out long enough to text me this photo. I laughed so hard I couldn’t breathe.
I find it both hilarious and kind of horrifying. What has happened to my sweet, precious little boys?? On one hand, it is so sweet that he is still sending his brother a “Be Mine” card on Valentine’s Day- but seriously- “even though you are a butt”?!?! When did that happen? Last year’s card ended with “You are my BFF” and the year before ended with “I love you”. Bittersweet.
(*Although, I really should not complain at all… because they both also sent ME a valentine-gram telling me that they love me. They are still sweet… just not to each other…)
I saw this yesterday and laughed so hard… then I kind of wanted to cry… #5 is I am very, very, very tired. I need to start sleeping better. For real… so, please don’t dream about me 😉
I hope you have an awesome weekend filled with naps!
