Happy Valentines Day!
According to our good friend, Chantelle, February 14th means nothing when you're awesome all the time...and I unabashedly concur. Fortunately, I can still spoil my daughter rotten with random Dollar Store princess things just because the calendar is kind enough to tell me to.
On this particular Valentines Day...her third, despite her age of approx. only two years...Zedder got:
- a card from her Dad with lots of things written in it that she can't read yet but someday will.
- a princess' tiara
- a magic wand
- some fairy wings
- a heart shaped box of Smarties
Pretty good haul for a day that doesn't do anything to distinguish us as any more awesome than we already are (thanks for the stellar line 'Tellie...it's brilliant). I like to think that Valentines Day is 24 hours of remembering how awesome it is to love and be loved and if it takes greeting cards that cost $5.99 and heart shaped packs of Schneider's Red Hots to do it...so be it (BTW...I only WISH they made heart shaped packs of Schneider's Red Hots, sadly they don't, but you can get eighteen different shaped boxes of Lindt chocolates). Sigh...it's just a nice and easy day dedicated to affection, and we could all use a little more of that.
