I saw this post about how a mom cut out a heart for every day leading up to Valentine’s day. She wrote something she loved about each of her children and taped it to their door every night.
I am not a crafty person. I am not an organized person but I thought this would be really cute to do for my boys and my husband.
First I thought I would really go above and beyond and do this for the entire month of February. I did some math and figured out I would need 112 hearts. I bought colored paper and sat down to trace and cut out my hearts.
I got three hearts cut out and decided this sucked and there had to be an easier way.
I went to the local ‘party supplies store’ or as I like to call it ‘the 7th circle of hell’ and found these:
Day 1: The oldest wondered what I was putting on “his” door. The others haven’t noticed yet. Husband has not mentioned any hearts.
Day 2: The oldest read his and rolled his eyes. The others haven’t noticed yet. Husband has yet to mention the hearts.
Day 3: The oldest asked if he could take the hearts down before his friends see them. The others…sigh… haven’t noticed theirs yet. Husband has not noticed his freaking hearts yet.
Day 4: The oldest took his hearts down. The middle put monster truck stickers on all of the remaining store bought hearts. The youngest ate half of a heart. Husband still has not noticed hearts. He has, however, noticed there is a bed made for him on the couch.
Day 5: Screw this…they will all get Valentine’s at school and daycare. Blah…
