Happy Valentine’s Day bloggy peeps!
Of course it wouldn’t be a true holiday if I didn’t create some kind of fiendishly stressful deadline for myself by deciding I needed to make a gift for everyone in Knittymunchkin’s preschool class. And never mind how, in the spirit of love and kindness, Knittymunchkin asked me to include everyone’s siblings as well. How could I possibly shy away from showing him how much fun giving can be just ’cause I’d rather be doing something much more glamorous than crocheting 25 heart pockets out of dishcloth cotton? Just kidding. You know I totally love doing it. Why else would I suddenly be wondering what the hell I’m going to do with myself when he goes to kindergarten and I can’t possibly expect to actually make gifts for each kid for each and every holiday. Heaven forbid I find an actual household chore to accomplish with my free time!
We filled these little heart pockets with a mini bag of m&m’s and a paper valentine that Knittymunchkin had picked out a couple weeks earlier. Leave it to my son to eschew the Spiderman, Ninja Turtles, and even Phineas & Ferb valentines in favor of cute puppies and kitties. But that’s Knittymunchkin for ya. I actually think it’s pretty sweet. And many of the parents thanked us after the school party for including the siblings in our gifting. I don’t know about Knittymunchkin, but I felt pretty warm and fuzzy spreading the love around this Valentine’s Day.
Hope you and everyone you love is having a wonderful day today too!!
