The first year Ryan was in school it didn’t occur to me until the night before Valentine’s Day that he would need Valentines for his classmates. Thankfully, I had an overflowing scrapbook supply closet (sorely neglected since I started blogging) and we pulled together 18 handmade Valentines and a decorated box for Valentine collection.
The following year I remembered a week early and while at the store with Ryan told him he could pick out any Valentines he wanted for his classmates.
But we ALWAYS make them!
And that is why my boys always take handmade Valentines to school. It was a tradition born of necessity.
I wanted to share a few of the REJECTED Valentines from Ryan’s first grade year. He and Reid were alone at the table laughing hysterically over this line of cards that never made it to school…
This was the popular “I love you but you steenk”.
Followed by the “I love you but you wer a diper”.
And who could forget the loving, “I love you but you poop”?
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
