The teeny-weeny Cars and Care Bear cards have all been passed out–along with Fun Sized packs of mini M&M’s at Thad’s school. His school is ACCREDITED, but not bound by the STATE OF TEXAS to adhere to ridiculous party day guidelines just yet. I gave MY kids chocolate hearts. . .which is COMPLETELY legal seeing as how chocolate has milk in it–though whether I did or did not give any out BEFORE lunch at. . .say. . .7:35 a.m. after the pledges, moment of silence, and announcements, when 1st period began, I will NEVER say.
I arrived home to my precious children standing in the walkway of a clean house (Alma came today–we should have left her a card and some chocolate hearts) holding a pink rose bud and exclaiming, “Happy Valentine’s Day, Mommy!” at the tops of their respective lungs.
They were visited by the “Valentine’s Angel” during the night. . .which is what Victoria began calling me about 3 years ago–they know it’s me. But last night, when I went to put their little gifts and chocolate outside their bedroom doors, they had left letters for me. That was a first, and whether I did or did not say. . .shed a few tears. . .well, I’ll totally admit to that.
I wore my red pants to school. . .and even though I DID have to make 6 behavioral calls after school, most of my kiddos behaved. It was a good day.
Happy Heart Day to you.
