Update: First Valentine’s Day

So I am a crap head mom. Yesterday we sent cute little Mickey Valentines to Wilder’s MDO class. When I picked him up yesterday I didn’t see anything in his bag and felt relieved that I wasn’t a slacker and a bit silly for bothering at all to send something for the class of a four month old. Today as I unpacked his bag I found three super cute Valentines. Foiled! (I’m talking a Stage Two Pinterest Crafter here.) But, that left two kids whose parents didn’t do anything. As Mike put it – we were middle of the road. Whew!
Then, alas, I finished unpacking Wilder’s bag an hour later to find two more super cute items.
The logical part of me says who cares? He’s four months old! But the oddly competitive new momma bear is digging out her glue gun and scouring Pinterest for St. Patrick’s Day crafts. (And she’s way bossier so I’ll listen to her.)

A super cute Valentine from Wilder’s class. Apparently Wyatt’s mom isn’t a slacker.


About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
