Do your kids think Valentine's Day is about love, hearts, and affection, or are they pretty much worshipping at the sugar altar like Ro and Ree? (click to enlarge, Ree in red, Ro in pink) I don't know how it happened, but they seem to think the day is all about scoring goodies to eat. Oh well, we'll work on that. One good thing is that all the candy they've been bringing home lately is stuff I won't eat, so I don't have to use any (mostly nonexistent) willpower to try and resist it. Seriously, you could lock me in a room for a week with SweetTarts, those weird Valentine "conversation" hearts, lollipops, and Nerds, and I wouldn't touch one bite of that stuff. The girls did make me some incredibly cute valentine's cards in between trying to sneak bites of their haul from the school party. And they have been pretty huggy lately. So I'll take it. Happy Valentine's Day (one day early)! PS: Does anyone have any fun ideas for crafts or activities to do for Valentine's Day or Chinese New Year? We went to our local FCC CNY party a couple of weeks ago, which was lots of fun, but both girls have colds right now, so we're going to lie low and celebrate a quiet, long Valentine's Day/Chinese New Year/President's Day weekend.
