Suggesting that Shy make her own Valentines this year was a bigger time commitment then I had anticipated :) Instead of a simplistic heart with lace, she came up with an extravagant idea involving M & Ms and mailboxes. 6 hours later her dream came to life. Reed choose a more traditional box of Valentines from Walmart. He did, however, have a specific idea for his Valentines box. His preschool teacher sent home a tissue box to decorate (as in cover it with foil and put some heart stickers on it.) Not one of my kids!!! He insisted we make the box into a Crocodile. I certainly paid my dues to the Valentine Gods this year.
Reed spent the afternoon playing with the balloons he got for Valentines day.
