I don’t know about you, but in my kid’s school classrooms, candy valentines are a thing of the past! To be honest, I’m not mad about it. With that said, while most years I am TOTALLY that mom who goes to the store to buy a box of Valentine’s Day cards for my kids to give out to their friends, this year, I’m patting myself on the back for being relatively pro-active about their Valentine’s and MUCH more creative! We are actually going to do something cute!
