Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Seems like such a silly day. :) Ours is off to a sad/bad start. My 7 year old son was getting ready this morning for school and he sat on the couch and started crying. He didn't look good. I asked him what was wrong and he told me that he had really bad nightmares last night and they gave him a headache. I felt his head and he was very hot. He did not want to miss the Valentine's Day party at school and was so bummed when I told him that he had to stay home today. It breaks your heart to tell your kid that he can't go to the party he's been looking forward to all weekend.

Now he is laying on the couch. We dropped off his Valentines and asked that his teacher collect his for him. But he is still bummed about it. I think for lunch I will make him some chicken noodle soup and serve it to him with a Valentine's card from me.

I may use this one:


The team over at My Little Shoebox is sharing Valentines cards with you on the blog today. This was the one I made. It uses some of their new stuff! Make sure you check out this post to see what others created.
