One thing I love about being a mommy is that I have the ability to make holidays special.
Some people are cynical about holidays like Valentines.
It's great that we have the opportunity to make days memorable for our kids- to involve them, to be creative, to capture "teachable moments" and to help them to find the joy.
We talked about love all day.
Isabella made cards for her friends/classmates and babysitter.
Ben made cards too.
Bella's cards were loosely inspired by something I saw on pintrest... with two finger prints making a heart.
And the inside was inspired by other cards online where there was a picture of a kid holding a sucker.
(I tried to find the original link and can't. Sorry)
Bella drew herself holding a sucker- giving it to a friend (tough to see, I know).
And the bands of red scrapbook paper were covering up a "Thank you" (these were extra thank you cards printed for our wedding- finally re-purposed 4.5 years later!)
