Valentines for Boys

In Kindergarten, at Christmas, the kids made calendars for the adults in their life (parents/grandparents/whoever – they call them “your adult” to be safe). For January, Eric drew a family of snowmen, and it was cute. For February… “Mommy, I drew you some hearts for Valentines Day, because I love you! But the hearts are…

Happy Valentine’s Day 2011!

Clearly these are people without children.
