Sharing the Love

We had school parties on Friday.  The girls selected their candy of choice and then made tags for each kid in their class.

Daughter #1 completed this task with little issue.

Daughter #2 required a bit more attention.  She selected blow pops.  Harmless enough.

She was on Pinterest and found the saying, “I’m a sucker for you.”  So we made those for the girls in her class.

For the boys, she decided “You Suck” was appropriate.  Yeah, not so much!

After envisioning the 10 phone calls from the boys parents, another from her teacher and finally the principal, I quickly put an end to that. 

Now most kids bring in a decorated shoe box or a bag to collect their valentine’s.  Daughter #2 would not have that.

I have created a monster!

Daughter #1 also branched out with her “mailbox”.

She actually painted this last year.  It is an old bread box that I found.  She loves it!

Hope you enjoy the day and share the love!

I agree, you wouldn't want to spend Valentine's day on the phone to the principal. You've taught your girls well :)
