    1. You just brought back all these memories of my mother telling me to make her something – but it wasn’t the same as when I had to do it in class, ha. I get it now. (Although I still love the class ones.)

  1. Love. A keeper! I have a soft spot for doilies like that.

    My 7 year-old son received a card from a classmate that said “I like you Thomas cause your nice and your not that rild up.” It’s priceless. And true.

    They can’t help but be honest, and that’s what makes cards like yours so special and real.

  2. My daughter came home from kindergarten with a valentine she’d made for her whole family. On the front she’d listed everyone in her family by name, including her little sister, me and my husband, her grandparents, her aunts, and a couple of MY uncles. And on the inside she’d written a bunch of “I love…” statements (in Spanish, because she is at a Spanish immersion school). Her first one was “Yo quiero mi hermana” (“I love my sister”). That card just makes me melt.

    1. I also melt when I see my girls include each other first. I love that when they think of love they think of their sister. It’s like vindication for any decision you’ve made (right or wrong) in how you’re raising them.

      Save that valentine, Cloud!
