So my son Timothy went back to school today after a long 2 week break. Last week he was sick and the week before...well, just don't get me started. Let me say this: if you're a mom and you've not had to go advocate for your child yet, just wait. Momma Bear, Momma Lioness, Momma Bull Elephant will come out and you'll not realize you had it in you. I had to do just that this week for Timothy and although I'm not pleased with the end result, I am happy he's back at school.
Anyway, *putting that behind me*, I found out today that Thursday will be his class's Valentine's Day party. He usually doesn't go to school on Thursday because he has therapy. However, I knew he would be decorating a bag to receive Valentines in from his friends, so I knew we had to have some to pass out. We may be able to make it to school for the last hour on Thursday, so maybe he'll be able to participate in the passing out and the party part. We'll see.
Me being the way that I am, I didn't WANT to get back out to WalMart and stand around trying to decide what valentines to purchase for Timothy to take to school. I didn't want the hassle. Plus, I have drawers FULL of card crafting items that are screaming to be used. So, I made my own valentines and I think they came out pretty cute! Timothy helped by gluing the eyes on and stamping his thumb into a heart shape on the back.
