Feeling the Love

Happy Valentine's Day!

I just came back from my son's school Valentine party.  I knew it was going to be crazy when I stepped out of my car and a bunch of kids on the playground yelled, "Hi, Mrs. Ellis!"

My job at the party was to help the kids make frames for their cute little Valentine pictures.  They were supposed to decorate the frames with stickers.  But they were more interested in decorating me.  A bunch of little boys attached heart stickers to my nose, my forehead, and my cheeks.

"We love you, Mrs. Ellis!" they said.

Then there was my boy.  He was like cling wrap.   "Mama, I want to hug and kiss you!"

"Fine.  One hug.  One kiss," I said.

But that didn't seem to be enough. 

"Can I come home with you?"  he asked.

I guess he loves me!

Here's another funny story:  My husband had given me a Valentine's Day card.  It was really sweet.  I set it down next to the flowers and went about my business. 

My son picked it up and started reading.  "Daddy says you're cute, and smart, and..."

He stopped with a big grin on his face.  "I'm not allowed to say this word, but Daddy says you're the "S" word!"

  3. I'm sure you are the "s" word -- sweet. That's it, right? But why isn't Bubba allowed to say sweet? And it's certainly sweet that all those kids love you so much and were so happy to see you. Children recognize a person's inner and outer beauty.

    Love,
    Janie

  6. Hahahaha!!! That was great, and how terrific all the kids were so excited you were at the party. I'm sure the teacher appreciated the help, too!

  7. I miss the wonder of valentines with my kids. They were always excited to pass out those little cards and the "I Love You, B Mine" candy hearts. Then they'd make me and their mother those red construction paper and doily cards. Since they became "too cool" high school kids and now college students, those days are gone.
    Or so I thought until we all got Willy Wonka Fun Dips from one of the kids in my class.
    Maybe I SHOULD go buy some chocolate Easter bunnies, after all.
