Same time last year
All Jack wanted was orange cones and a headband. Go figure. So for Valentine’s Day last year, that’s just what he got. He was thrilled.
This year we got him a light up heart pen, Snoopy pin that says “Be Mine” and a small M & M holder tubey thing. Oh and a small monkey holding a heart, named “Casanova”. I conveniently snuck everything up and put it on the chair in his room.
Dennis: What’d we get him?
me: A few little things.
Jack: (shouts from upstairs) Oh, I LOVE this Mom! He hugs the little monkey and puts the pin on. I LOVE pins!!! (he came running down the stairs)
me: Happy Valentine’s Day sweetie!
Luckily I even remembered to get him anything. Duh! It was 7am, I was heading home from my class and it hit me. I raced to one store. Closed. Raced to another store. Opens at 10am. Raced to a third store. Closed! Raced back to the original store. Whew, had just opened. Saved my butt.
