Brady informed me a week before Valentine's Day that he was not going to pass out Valentine's to his class. I'm not really sure if this is because it starts to get a little embarrassing by 4th grade to give girls cards that say "I think you're sweet" or "be mine"....or if he was just being lazy. He just didn't feel like doing it. He did however give out candy that he put in a bag to take to school. Not cute little individual heart bags...but a big old freezer bag. Times are changing around here for sure.
Because Brady wasn't all that into the ocassion, this was all I gave him on Valentine's morning...
and in true Brady fashion, he was thrilled with just this.
I think the days of making these, these, and these, are just about over. Sometimes I find myself feeling sad about this...which is ridiculous...I know. It's just that I was good at that. I often worry that I will not be good at this next phase that is right around the corner. Anyway, I woke up yesterday morning and was looking at pictures on the computer of previous Valentine's Days and feeling sorry for myself that no one in this house was excited about this year's LOVE day.
Boy was I wrong.
When I walked into the kitchen I found this waiting for me...
Eric got me flowers and made me a card...and he and Brady had picked up a gift for me the week before. I started to cry...because in that moment, I realized I had forgotten who my true Valentine is and always will be. My husband.
And, as it turns out...somebody else what pretty excited about suprising me on Valentine's Day too!
Times are changing around here for sure...but some things I know will always stay the same.
Thanks Eric and Brady for always making me feel loved...everyday.
I hope your Valentine's Day was filled with love and a little
suprise or two!
