Rather I should say, To: My Son’s Friend’s Parents

Yesterday at daycare, my son and his friends (ages 4 months to 13 months) decorated paper bags with their name on it to collect valentines today. Fortunately the teachers hung the bags over their cubby yesterday and I noticed them at pickup. No big deal, I’ll run to Target after Max goes to bed… ha. This was the scene of their seasonal display at Target on the eve of Valentine’s Day:

I had mixed emotions as I was choosing between Frozen or Puppy valentines:

  1. #fail
  2. I need to step up my mom game. If I don’t get excited for these silly holidays Max may miss out on the fun. I don’t want to take that away from him.
  3. Should I make the Valentine out to the kids or the parents?
  4. At least I’m not alone, other parents are here with me scraping the bottom of the barrel for their kid’s Valentine’s Day exchange.
  5. Oh well, Max doesn’t know the difference between a princess and a puppy. But log this moment into the depth of my brain so I don’t make the same mistake next year when he’s a toddler and will probably throw a tantrum over the character that is on the Valentine.

Puppies it is. I filled them out, dropped them in the kids bags at drop off today and no one will ever know the #momfail feeling I was having last night. And as a bonus these Valentine’s are stickers and you know how much infants love stickers!! 🙂

I might even pat myself on the back for dressing him in red today for his first Valentine’s Day. Sorry Max, your mom is a mess. 

Valentine’s Day festivities may not be my strong suite, but loving you everyday is.

  1. I love it! I don’t think I’d even participate for kids that age. We’ll cross that bridge at 3 years old.

  2. You are one of the best moms I know! You don’t need cards to prove that. Too much pressure out there for holiday crap!
