Happy Valentine’s Day

Poor D has been sick most of this week, fighting a terrible cold and cough and, ultimately, missing her classroom Valentine’s party.  However, we weren’t about to allow the party to go on completely without us.  We still made our special Valentines and dropped them off so her friends could receive a little D love.  My mom sent me this idea and I thought it was so cute.  I also liked that it didn’t involve candy.  Everyone can use a cute pencil, right?!  I found this template over at Bits of Everything  and printed it on construction paper.  Easy and something a little different – everything a working mama can love.

This year, instead of a count down chain, we made and decorated 14 paper hearts and hung them up garland style (see our Thanksgiving garland).  Last night, I took all the removed hearts and decorated D’s door so she would see them when she woke up in the morning.  Through blurry eyes and a running nose, she smiled – my Valentine’s Day is complete.

Enjoy your day of love!
