HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
We are in the midst of a bad storm, snow and sleet and ice so school was canceled. H's colorfully crayoned Valentines are piled neatly in their box, waiting to be delivered. I am delighted that he still wants to make them all by hand as most kids have switched to the mass-produced cheapies by this age. The allure of familiar cartoon characters paired with a piece of candy is just so irresistable and easy. I asked H if he wanted to tape a piece of candy onto each of his cards and he shot me a look of the deepest affront. "No, thank you." was all he said with quiet dignity. My art should be enough! was the unspoken message.
