I love it.
So much so, that I decided to prepare a bunch of cheesy little Valentine gifts to give to my boys throughout the big day. I kept it really simple with inexpensive, mostly ordinary treasures and handwritten notes from me. My goal is thoughtfulness rather than fanciness.
You’ll also notice there is not a lot of sugar. They get plenty from school Valentines. I try hard not to add to that.
There are some for snack time, some to put on their car seats as little surprises when I pick them up from school, and some for bedtime. They recently got over being very sick, so new toothbrushes seemed appropriate.
I am not a morning person. When we have a baby in the house, I am even less of a morning person. So, instead of getting up early this year to make a special breakfast. I baked up some mini muffins and popped them in the freezer. That way I can pull some out the morning of, and have a breakfast like this waiting to greet them. (They’ll get more than two mini muffins of course. ;))
I got these white octagonal milk glass mugs at a yard sale last summer for $1 for a set of four. I’m so in love with them.
Oh, and the muffins are banana chocolate chip…which helps explain the phrase a little better…
And just so my husband doesn’t feel left out (even though I am pretty sure most men don’t care for Valentine “cheese”), I got him a bag of Almond Joy Pieces. His two favorite candies in one. Perfect. (I’m fairly certain he won’t read my blog until this weekend. If not, avert your eyes honey!)
I hope you en-JOY ;) your Valentines Day!
