SEND LOVE LETTERS TO YOUR KIDS
We have a little post box attached to the back of our front door (ok, a chocolate box), and I've been putting little love notes in there for Poppy, each one telling her about a special thing about her that I love. Today she asked me to make some for Calla as well :)
MAKE CARDS FOR FRIENDS
I asked Poppy to choose a few friends to send Valentine's Day cards to. Not that we want to be stingy with cards but because she writes in all of them, and it would be really tiring to write to everyone. She wrote the names of her friends on doilys and we stuck them on with washi tape. Easy peasy and done in a day.
We ended up having to make envelopes too because the cards were too big for the envelopes we had! Thank you, washi tape for prettyfying everything
EAT YOUR HEART OUT!
Ok, not literally.
Breakfast at home on school days is often a hurried affair, dotted with reminders of "We're going to miss the bus!". So heart shaped french toast on the weekend is a nice change to the usual slab of toast and peanut butter that greets Poppy every morning.
READ LOVEY BOOKS
Our all-time favourite is Guess How Much I Love You. Even Calla loves it. Or at least that's what I think from her hitting the book all the time.
It's so easy to kiss a baby cos it's in your arms alot. But do grab your older child for hugs and kisses too, and don't forget your spouse! I think it's important for kids to see their parents giving hugs and kisses to each other. Poppy sometimes asks "Why do you hug Papa?" And the answer to that is "Because I love him" :)
