They certainly didn’t need a mom to come in and take away their fun.
They were so excited about their creation their little eyes shone in delight.
Claire whipped up her own this year too and was pleased as punch about that thing.
I had stars in my eyes about making home-made picture-valentines this year, but we didnt’ get to it, and they thought the ones they picked out at Walgreens were just about the best things on the planet.
I realized as they walked across the street, hand-in-hand, with smiles as big as the sky wearing their specially picked out valentines’ wardrobes and hair-dos that I sure am training myself out of a job.
And as much as it’s hard to let go sometimes, I sure love who these little ones are becoming all on their own.
Oh boy do I ever love doing projects with them. But sometimes it’s pretty darn fun to watch them take pride in their own work too.
