I know there will be a day when I look back and miss it all, blah blah blah. But for now, there's so much crafting that goes into these events.
Valentine's Day is a perfect example. Anything Samson is supposed to "bring in" to school means stuff for me to "help" him work on at home. And we all know, these valentines aren't for the people he loves or even his close friends. There for each and every kid in the class. Wouldn't want anyone to feel left out! (Would they even notice?)
This year, Samson said he wants to buy his at the 99 cent store and fill in the names. In one respect, that's a mom's dream. Easy-peasy! Done and Done. But it's also a neurotic mom's nightmare. Where's the creativity? That store is dirty. What will the other moms think?
Of course, the alternative is me staying up all night making the damn things.
Here's a little video on the subject...
