Over the past couple of weeks, the boys and I have spent some here-and-there time making things for Valentines Day and talking about the importance of telling others that we love them.
Grady Lee has informed me that he will love me "even when I'm big like Daddy." Precious.
Micah has, however, declared that he "wuvs Daddy the most and Annalyse the most." Unprecious.
Several days back we made Luv Bugs. My boys are into anything bug-related. As they were busy painting them, I explained that they needed to hide them in a special place for Dad and for me. They needed to put them in a place that would surprise us and when we found them and then we'd know we were bitten by the Luv Bug.
The boys chose to "hide" the Luv Bugs for Dad in his office. When I asked Grady Lee why the office, he said "because Dad loves to work!" Huh - makes sense.
Thank you Michaels Craft Stores for some ultra-cheap heart-shaped foam that my boys glued and added sparkles to. For any family member reading this, you just may discover one in a mailbox near you.
And, what would Valentine's Day be without some baking? Cupcakes and frosting and sprinkles - oh my!
