We were so busy when it came time to make Valentines that I went the easiest possible route.
That's right. Pinterest. I know I'm not the only one.
So here they are.
heart-shaped toast and jelly.
pink lady apples sliced thin and cut with a cookie cutter.
pink cream cheese on a bagel.
eggs fried inside a bell-pepper slice.
Okay, some of these ideas were mine. But not many.
Valentine's Day conversation:
Emma: (looks at me sitting with a big heart-shaped box of chocolates in my lap.) Mom, are you going to eat ALL of those?
Emma: All of them?! Today?
Me: I'm going to try.
Emma: *scoffs* Hmm. You are not a saver like me.
Me: I guess not.
Emma: What are you going to do when you come home one day and think, "I need some chocolate," but you don't have any because you ate it all?
She's 7 years old, but she already understands that chocolate is a need.
Happy Valentine's Day!
