My girls were very excited and also very opinionated about Valentines this year.
Here is what we came up with (copied from Pinterest and downloaded).
Macy made each of her classmates a bracelet.
Polly made adorable hearts with her thumbprint.
Macy came home from school the other day with a list of all her classmates and the animals they chose to do a report on.
The list was filled with deer, snake, eagle, cheetah, monkey, etc...
Next to Macy's name? Skink
This made me laugh and it also made me happy. I'm glad that in second grade she feels like it's okay to be unique. It feels like maybe something is going right around here.
I'm going to store that little piece of information in my parent brain for when I'm hearing about the MANY injustices of her childhood.
