The valentines that she'd made out for her teachers and classmates were still in her backpack, neatly tucked into the envelope that I had put them in yesterday morning.
Which begs the questions: what was she doing exactly while all the other kids were passing out their stuff? "Thanks for the heart-shaped box of Hershey Kisses. Psych! Nothin' for you, sucka!"
This was the first year that Audrey had actually filled out the To/From on her valentines too. Of course, none of her recipients would care much about that...they'd only care that there was not a box of anything attached to said valentine. What can I say? Momma was busy this year.
We went with store-bought valentines because, even though she only has 6 classmates, I was not about to nag her to make homemade ones. She did receive one beautiful homemade card from BFF Grace Anne.
The drawing on the left is clearly an artist rendering of Audrey singing into a microphone. Clearly. My guess for the right-hand drawing was a flying nun with a bad case of hyperthyroidism being called to her vocation by St. Margherita, the patron saint of pizza. This apparently is not correct. My text queries were passed along to Grace Anne last night, and she let us know (through her tears) that this was also meant to be a drawing of Audrey. With a pizza over her head.
As it appears that we are celebrating one day late this year, by passing out the valentines that we should have done yesterday AND trolling for 1/2 price candy today, Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
