It brings me such joy to watch the lovely shades of pink and red creeping into my kids' faces when I yell their personalized messages of love out my car window as they enter school. I know Joe thinks that he will be getting a ride to school from his older cousin next year but I really think he will miss my public declarations of love. "JOE!!!! Hey, Joey!! I LOVE YOU!!!!! Have a great day, honey!" I think he would really enjoy letting his new high school friends see how much his mommy loves him.
Something he should keep in mind.
Today, since it was Valentine's Day I had to up my game. Along with special chocolates and little gifts that I gave them this morning I really wanted to "personalize" my love for them even more. As I dropped them off for school this morning they tried their best to outrun my pronouncements but I would not be deterred. I was actually able to drive after them a little ways as I shouted out my personalized "I love you!"s.
Tommy was kind enough to hold the door for a bunch of people behind him and I seized the opportunity to shout, "Bye Tommy!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!" He handled it well. Especially considering there was a mom walking her children into school and she turned around laughing and gave me a thumbs up.
Ahh, good times.
Ya gotta love Valentine's Day.
Special shout out to this guy:
Happy Valentine's Day, all! I hope you all have a lovely day and are able to announce your love to all those who are special to you.
