Valentine

What an honestly simple sentiment for Valentine's day.
That's lovely.

Thank you, Nina!

Like the other, this is a picture from a couple of years ago. This child doesn't like having his picture taken, and a newer picture would probably have upset him! I showed him the valentine last night, and he read it. At first he didn't like the part about the grasshopper because it worried him. Then he realised he was holding the grasshopper in his hands in the poem, and all was good. :) He told me again about the card he is making for our family, and the poem he wrote for it. These kids are such wonderful, complex beings!

Beautiful. And so heartfelt. You make me want to reach inside myself and write for my children. Life becomes so busy with chores, helping with homework, etc...I forget to stop and just feel this love. Both the Valentines you did are amazing and the poem too. Thanks for sharing so much:).

Thank you all so much! :)

Faith, that's exactly the position I find myself in so often. We get into this coping pattern, where we're just trying to get the basics done, and we forget to celebrate life and one another. Things like these valentines help me to remember what is really important, and to let my little ones know that they are really important to me.

Makes me think of my 9 month old first grandson. My husband and I are going down to babysit today so his mother and father can have a date. After all he is Joe's and my mutual sweetheart right now, so what could be more fitting (and we went dancing last night).
