Valentine's Day Through the Eyes of an 8 Year Old Boy

Valentine's Day around our house is usually pretty low key. We exchange cards and a little gift with the kiddos and usually just hang out together like any other night. This Valentine's Day wasn't any different. But my son is really starting to notice the girls lately. Well, this year he was ecstatic about filling out his V-Day cards for not one, but two special little girls in his class. Personally, I think he's still a little young to have eyes for anybody other than mommy. :) Well, his class exchanged their cards and he was tickled. The card he got from one of his little "girl" friends was of Spongebob and it showed a set of lips on his forehead with the words "Awww Shucks" written at the top of it. He said, "She gave me a kiss". I couldn't help but smile to see the excitement this little card brought to my little man. Young love! How sweet and innocent it is. If it could only stay this way.

Another thing that happened on V-Day was also really cute. Each morning our school has a news program that is broadcast on the TV in each classroom. This particular morning the before mentioned little girl was chosen to do the Pledge of Allegiance. During the newscast of the Pledge, my son announced to his class, "She's looking at me! Did you see her"? His teacher caught me in the office while we were signing out and just had to share. She said it was the cutest thing she had seen in a long time and couldn't help but share it with everyone she talked to that day. Kids say the darndest things!
