Stella had a Valentine’s Day project for school: Decorate a shoe or oatmeal box for the kids in class to put cards in it. “Well, we will have to go to the store and pick out some cards, too.” I said.
“I want to make the cards!” She exclaimed. “I want to make them so they are special.” And so, my crafty little girl made handmade Valentine’s Day cards for her class. And together we painted the oatmeal box with chalkboard paint so she and her friends could write messages on it. She was so happy! Stella looked at her project, then looked at me and said “Mom! I love that we are so creative!”
That little girl made my heart smile!
