well, we've been trying to make valentines for 2 weeks now. i've cut out big hearts, small hearts, offered myriad sequins, gems, glitter glue, markers, paints. my mama even came to town and had a valentine-making session with koruna. so the girl has made some valentines. but every time she finishes one, she reveals that it is for her. "it is for myself" she says. and every once in a while she says that one is for me.
i did manage to sneak a precious few out in the mail this morning so they'd be just in time for the day-or-2 after-valentine's-day.
i've explained to runa several times that on valentine's day it can be fun to tell our friends and family that we love them. that we can make them sweet somethin's or surprise them with little love notes in the mail. but it seems she is content being her own valentine this year. i hope she is as kind to herself in the years to come.
so to all of you who find nary a thing in your mailbox from the ingrams this year...
