It's Valentine's Day. And for young schoolkids, that means bringing enough valentines for every child in the class.
If it were up to me, I would just buy Elliot a 20-pack of preprinted cards for school ("I choo-choo-choose you, and it has a picture of a train.") But my wife is a bit too crafty for that.
She and the little guy created these neat cardboard roses by cutting up egg cartons and decorating them with paint and glitter glue. Each one has a lollipop inside, providing the flower's stem.
However, making 20-plus of them took some time. (In fact, Elliot went to bed well before we finished.)
Suddenly, I'm a big proponent of smaller class sizes.
