Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. My son had his little party at school and exchanged little cards with sweet treats. A few weeks ago I purchased some fun superhero sticker cards from Target and felt ahead of the game. Go Me! Then I perused the lovely Pinterest for some more Vday ideas and found a plethora of options. These were way better ideas than the measly old cards I got. Home made and hand crafted little sayings. Creations made with candy. Let the pinning and creating begin!
Fast forward to last night while cleaning out my son’s back pack from Monday and ah ha- a reminder note surfaced about the Valentine’s day party. Which meant I needed to fill out the cards for his class and figure out (last minute of course) a little treat to give away. So I filled out the cards and taped (yes I’m fancy) a fruit snack pack to each card. Thank goodness for COSTCO and bulk fruit snack packs. HAHA! I had completely forgotten that I actually had to do something for his Vday school party, let alone create something pinterest worthy.
I LOVE Pinterest. Don’t get me wrong. I probably spend too much time on that dang site, but then reality surfaces and I may do 3% of what I actually see on it. It’s way more fun to get inspired than to actually do it, right?!? Ha! I know I’m not the only one out there.
Anyway I brought my sons goodies to share at school and saw some major pinterest inspired handy work from some other moms and their treats. Good for y’all. And I seriously mean that. It’s impressive! I love getting ideas and thinking I’ll be on my A-game with this stuff for my kids and being a supermom. But in reality, I am lucky I remembered the pre-made together cards in itself. Hey, at least my kid wore red to school today (also a happy accident). Maybe someday I’ll get the hang of this whole parenting and supermom thing. Until then, I’ll perfect my pinterest boards. 🙂
Oh and Happy Valentines Day. May your day be filled with love, chocolate, and wine.
