There is something about having a kid in the house that makes all holidays that much more exciting. When my son turned 3, he “got” birthdays. The morning after his birthday party he woke up, ran into my room and cheered “I want a happy birthday!” Basically, he wanted a party.
After a busy month of 9 birthdays within 4 weeks, each morning he would ask whose birthday is next. Anytime we eat cake he asks whose birthday it is. Then came Christmas. We had to wait a while for birthdays. Guess what made it to the top of the list to celebrate? Happy New HYears. He has no idea what it means, yes, that is how he pronounces it, and yes, it was a blast.
For Valentines he is prepared and anticipating great things. I have to up my ante a bit in the excitement area. The really cute cards and gifts I once rolled my eyes at on Pinterest are making their way into my to-do list. When you anticipate it for over a month, there are big expectations.
Rather than use up my ink on printables, I found these adorable Valentines Day Cards from Shutterfly.
One of these cards designs will go to each of the classmates, and we will probably get a personalized iPhone case for Grandma. If I have enough energy, I think it would be cute to attach some pop rocks candy to the You Rock! card or the conversatoin candy to the Be Mine card. So cute!
What are your Valentines traditions with your kids?
