Valentine’s Day is sneaking right up on us! Just four more days! Mae has been spending hours creating Valentines for everyone in her life. It’s the sweetest thing. She makes a pile at school, and then comes home and makes some more. Last week she made me a Valentine that said she loves me because we play the “trash can game.” I haven’t a clue what she’s referring to, but if the girl loves me for it I’ll take it.

Although we don’t do big Valentine’s Day gifts for the girls, I’ll use any excuse to buy them a couple of new books to add to their collection. So that’s what we’ll be getting them this year! Plus I might get them each a pair of these heart pajamas since seeing them in matching footed sleepers is my favorite thing and bedtime is pretty much the only time I can convince Mae to match her little sissy.
