Valentines

Bleechh. I hate Valentines Day. We are usually the family at Target the day before Valentines Day trying desperately to find a box of valentines for the boy to hand out that are not Hello Kitty or some other horrible pink madness. This is one holiday I just don't like. At all.

Having said that, this year I thought I would try and be ahead of the game and make Adam some cute but boy-ish valentines to hand out to his class. This is what I came up with-



Sorry the picture isn't great. I don't know what is up with my camera. It couldn't be user error.

So I show them to Adam and what does he say?
"Mmmmm, hmmmm, those are good Mom. (slightly uncertain pause) But we could also go to the store and see what they have."

Translation- I'm too nice to come right out and say those are terrible. Can we please go to the store and buy some?

And of course I made a bunch before showing them to him. Blasted kid. Why, oh why, did I raise him to be an independent thinker? Why? Good thing he's cute.

I guess we will be at Target the night before Valentines Day. Or I guess I could go earlier and get it over with. Whatever.

So, anyone want to be my valentine? You get a shunned-by-a-7-year-old valentine all for your very own...

Tempting huh?

Pin It!

I think those are great! What if you were to attach a piece of candy to it - would that sweeten it up?! LOL!
