I remember sitting at my kitchen table carefully scrutinizing every valentine that came in my package of 24 cards. Which card is the best? Which will tell him that he’s special? Will he know that I agonized over his card and that he is special? Obviously, I had to make sure I didn’t inadvertently give the best one to the boy who ate glue. Eww. He would get the wrong idea.
Remember when love was simple? When you loved the boy who shared his lunchable and didn’t pull your ponytail (or hit you with a backpack with a rock in it, Cole Hunter, I’m looking at you). When you loved the boy who stood up for you and told the bossy girl that playing the Pink Power Ranger’s pet dog was stupid and she should make up another character for you; the boy who helped you with your fractions because your brain doesn’t work that way.
Check out this video and be inspired by these kidlets over at DailyCandy. They know the true meaning of love (although the girl who wants to marry her brother is in for an awkward conversation in the future).
And with that, have a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend! Be sure to stop by later and see what Sapphire has in store for us today (although I’m not sure things can get better than chocolate, yummmm).
