Valentine’s day

Today was Valentine’s day.  It was pretty uneventful at our house.  The biggest part of the day was the preparation for my daughter’s day at school.  About a week ago, we received a note from her school teacher announcing that the kids would be exchanging valentines and that we should make sure that she brought valentines for all of her classmates.  The instructions also seemed to specify that homemade valentines were preferred.  This might be a nice gesture except that there are 25 kids in her class.  In my effort to be a supportive parent, I decided t o help my daughter make all 25 valentines.  To make a long story short, it basically took all afternoon and well into the night to finish all 25 valentines.  In fact, my daughter actually went to bed close to the normal time rather than waiting up to help complete the valentines.  Now I know that next time there is a request from school that our daughter bring something for her classmates, I will be sure to read the fine print to determine just how far you can go and still
