Ben and I finished up his valentines for preschool tomorrow. We went through a few iterations before settling on the final product. And we may have consumed our weight in goldfish during the process.
I liked this one: sleek and easy. But the staple was problematic.
So we settled for festive red string tied in a knot.
And then Ben made one for himself...
Funny, we just participated in a study at University of Washington about toddlers and how they allocate prizes between themselves and a participant. The results, if you know my son, were predictable.
“I WON that game, mama!”
On one hand, I’m glad that he’s competitive. On the other, the trash talk gets
kinda really old.
Who knows. Perhaps some generous and kind valentine love will rub off on him. :)
