Yesterday, we had our 2nd snow day in a row. So I decided we were going to get some things accomplished. One of those things was the younger kids' valentine collection boxes. This is my daughter's first year getting to make one and pass out valentine's so I assumed she would go all super girl on me.
I bought the boys heart shaped boxes last year and painted them to appear like Minecraft Hearts (there is a link at the end of this post to find those).
So, I bought the princess and sweet little girl that calls me Mommy a heart shaped box I found at Hobby Lobby, because I knew how much she wanted one last year. I pulled it out and said "What colors do you want to paint your heart box?" fully expecting to hear pink or purple. Nope. This girl shouts with a massive grin BLACK! I tried to talk her out of it. No luck. I did get her convinced that the hearts there were molded into the sides of the box can be red and pink.
And you can bet your butt I did all I could do to make this dark and evil looking heart look awesome...I sprayed that thing with gold glitter!
She is happy with it and really at the end of the day, that is what matters. Children are really good at throwing us for a loop and stopping us right where we stand. My daughter is a bit of an expert in that.
