My Funny Valentine

I'm having a great Valentines Day this year; Jace and I slept in late this morning, then I went to the store and bought him Krispy Kreme creme-filled chocolate frosted doughnuts (none for ME, I'm having oatmeal, toast and coffee!). Now we're snuggled up on the sofa for a little while; he is enjoying cartoons and I'm playing around on the laptop. What a great Saturday morning!

Jace's class wrote Valentines letters at school this week. He was proud of his, especially about the funny comment at the end:

It says: "Dear Mom, Thank you for helping me on my homework. you also do my laundry. But that's not why I love you. I love you because your my mom. You also give me an allowance. I'll see you later. PS: can I have a raise in my allowance? Sincerely, Jace

Nice try, son! He is a great kid, with a big heart and a funny sense of humor. I find myself being grateful for his openness and loving personality, because I know he may become more reserved as he gets older. After all, it isn't cool to be as close to your parents when you're a teenager. So I try to make time each day to snuggle and talk, and just enjoy my time with him.

Happy Valentines Day to everyone, hope you all are with someone you love.

Jace is such as sweet kid! That was so thoughtful of him to write you a valentine letter, even if he asked for a raise in his allowance.

I do have one question about him though, what's with the Indians hat? That's two pictures I've seen with that hat.

Glad you enjoyed your Valentine's Day. Luke and I spent ours with Mom and Dad and we actually really enjoyed it!

So sweet. Glad you snuggled up with your baby. :) That just makes me smile. Your heart is so warm and your attitude is inspiring Nance.
