I remember in grade school when it was Valentine's Day. My anti-candy mom let me put one conversation heart in with my valentine (this is when they came with envelopes. Did I just date myself? Snap. Oh well).
I was VERY careful about who got which one. You didn't want to give the boy who wiped boogers under his desk the one that said "Kiss Me." He might get the wrong idea. It was much safer to give him the meaningless "Chill Out." I didn't know it at the time but this was my first dabblings into social politics.
So this week I was helping my son prep his valentines (which he still calls "Valentimes" even at 10 years old...cute!) and the conversation went something like this:
Kido: I love Valentimes.
Kido: You get to give people stuff
Me: You like that.
Kido: Yes, you have to get them a valentime for their personality. Like Devin...he likes taco's.
So if you are wondering what to get a 10 year old who likes tacos...It’s an alien dressed like a caveman :)
If I had to pick out a conversation heart for Devin I would choose "Heat Wave"—because tacos are hot...as you can see...I still got it!
Have a great weekend :)
