This afternoon I started putting together goodie bags for the boys’ Valentine’s parties at school. I just love those sweet, chalky conversation hearts! Luckily I bought a big bag, knowing we all would be diving in as soon as I poured the candy into a bowl. I read through the various saying on the hearts and most of them were pretty typical: “Hey baby,” “Love U,” “Angel,” and so on. But then I saw this one:
How funny is that! Do you think that pre-schoolers even know what Twitter is? Maybe the second graders do, though. I mean, one of Jake’s favorite jokes involves Flickr, so I wouldn’t be surprised. At any rate, I managed to fill 19 bags for Jake’s class and 17 for Noah’s. I have to admit that I was stingy with my favorite candy… the bag of Tootsie Rolls!
Come on, the kids are getting lollipops, too. They’ll never miss a couple (OK, half a bag) of my second favorite candy ever
So now I’m just waiting for the snow. One weather report says we’ll get 4-8 inches; another claims 6-12, so who really knows? I’m counting on a snow day tomorrow, either way. Although I’m not in love with the idea of more snow, at least it’ll look prettier than the drab, half-melted landscape I’m currently seeing.
