Happy Heart Day

February 13, 2007

Journal, Lauren

After grumbling about getting things ready for Valentine’s Day, Annette asked me, “Is there a holiday you don’t hate?”  The answer is….I don’t know.  I like St. Patrick’s Day because I stamp tiny footprints all over school and fib to the children.  “Yeah, must have been that leprechaun.”

Back to Valentine’s Day.  It’s not that I hate the actual day, but children become different creatures around the holidays.  This day is the closest we come to having a ‘party’, so it will be a long day.  On tap:  making bead necklaces, making heart crowns, ‘Jesus Loves Me’ tattoos, a ladybug craft, passing out Valentines, and snack.  The passing out the Valentines is the big deal of the day, and it takes most of the morning for 24 preschoolers to accomplish that task, then we reward them by loading up on cupcakes!!  Woo-hooo!!

This is the stuff that I’m taking from home.  What have I forgotten?

I know!  I forgot to wish Samith a Happy Birthday!!! 

A box of love

    Don’t you have anything prepared about how St. Valentine was torn apart by wolves in the coliseum?

    You forgot the 7-up and sherbet! Rum and Coke! And, actually, I do believe I posed the question to you in the postive… “are there any holidays you like?!” Oh yeah, did I mention you forgot the rum and coke?

    24 … is that just one class? Or 2 classes of 12?
    I think you need the rum & coke packed in your bag every day!
