happy valentines day.


happy happy heart day!

here's to a happy day at home.
how will you spend your day?


Heart of Flowers

and just humor me for a minute here.

so...i was in helping for the kindergarten valentine party
this morning...and was paired with two moms that i have
never met before.

our "station" was set up in the hallway,
with about 6 paint sticks taped to the floor, and
 a large heart at the last paint stick.

the kids were split up into 2 groups, and
were supposed to kind of race each other,
hopping over the sticks, get the heart, and bring it back to the next person.
kind of a relay deal.
our station was to last for 15 minutes long!
(and then the kids rotated thru 6 different stations.)

so it took about 6 minutes into it, and the kids were kind of tired of hopping.
no kidding?
so...i suggested maybe we should do the crab walk instead.
what a great idea, right?
what would be more fun to watch 5 and 6 year olds walk across the floor on
their hands and feet?

WRONG. these moms shot me down like a...
i couldn't believe it.
and you want to know why "the crabwalk wasn't a good idea?"
THEIR HANDS WOULD GET TOO DIRTY.

aggghhh. please humor me.
i hope i don't accidentally invite their kids over
to my FARM for a playdate. ;)

do they even know what DIRTY is?
ha.ha.ha.

:)

i know we  are all trying to do the best job that we can.
but...really? the crabwalk?

I am laughing out loud at work! Oh my, they shouldn't come to my house either! Owen sucks his finger, still, and who knows where his hands have been sometimes! :) A little dirt never hurt anyone, I often think "germ-free" ppl don't expose themselves to germs enough and get sick more often!
Happy Valentine's Day.
