There’s nothing like a fabricated holiday, such as Valentine’s Day, to make those slacker Mom’s (ummmm) feel even less Pinterest-worthy and just down right lazy.
Case in point….I present…a valentine that was in my 2 year old’s “valentine mailbox” from preschool.
Love it! Sooo cute! But, that looks like A LOT of work.
This must have required mulitple assembly line purchasing/crafting.
1. Someone had to go to a store a buy all this, alternatively maybe a 1-2-3 Amazon Prime click….but still.
2. Computer use and multiple font design and implementation was required.
3. Tools and devices were activated! I haven’t seen a GLUE GUN since Rush circa 1999.
4. Ribbon, cut out glitter flowers, cut out circles! Scissors…scissors???
I will spare myself the embarassment of what my offsprings’ valentine’s looked like…but you can only guess…
The Eldest- He’s practically an adult at age 8, so I bought him a kit from Target and a bag of candy and let him do some independant crafting and taping. Not entirely lame, there was AT LEAST 1% Mommy participation.
The Middle– Pre-assembled Star Wars valentines were purchased. Again, at age 6, he’s almost legal. I gave him scissors, a glue stick, and his class list and told him to “have fun!”.
Nosy Meap- Again, 2 is never too young to start cutting the apron strings. I bought Hello Kitty pre-assembled valentines and gave her a pink crayon to “write her name”.
Seriously. You wish I was your Mom.
