Three boys, one dog, one chinchilla…Sometimes, you just have to STOP…and Count To Ten.

I am a Valentine’s Day Mommy Failure.
Back in the DAY…I use to sew cute hearts for my kids classes, fill them with candy and small toys, and make some gorgeous flower arrangement for the teachers.

Tonight, Eli had to remind me at 6:00pm that he needed cards for the kids in his class. SO…I rush off to Target (of course) and grab small little boxes of Valentine’s with tattoos in them. (they couldn’t bring candy to class)

I get home…Eli loves them….then, I SUDDENLY realize that I have ANOTHER child in school! Although it’s only preschool, Isaac is in a class with 5 other special needs kiddos…and I am SURE they will do something.

What did I get for Isaac’s classmates?


I can’t get them candy because they don’t eat, I could just print off some cards (it’s the thought that counts, right?)…..gosh, what to do? I mean…it isn’t Christmas or anything. I thought about just buying a box of doughnuts for the teachers…

still thinking about the kids.

To make me feel even MORE horrible….this week is Congenital Heart Awareness week and I haven’t had the time or energy to spread the word, love, or stats about heart defects because I’ve been taken care of one sick heart kiddo.

Maybe next year.
