I thought it was odd that the storytime schedule at the library lists February 14th as a Chinese New Year celebration. Hmmm.
Then I realized I hadn't recieved a class list with the "everyone gives a valentine to everyone" note. Strange. Maybe I missed it in the Wednesday folder.
I asked one mom, who didn't know.
So I asked Ms. Y, and there are no Valentine parties at our school. Yes for Chinese New Year. Yes for the 100th Day of School. But no Love.
What? Is this legal? Is this even American, I ask you?
I was hoping to make this project with Emily for her class. Bummer.
Now that I threw my tantrum I am feeling a little better about this idea. A small day focused on loving the people closest to you - not just a day of Sponge Bob cards from someone named Eli. I am going to have to re-think our day and come up with a Lovely plan.
Maybe heart shaped pancakes. Maybe a silly lolipop mustache made by me as a suprise. Maybe fondue. And sparkling cider in tall fancy glasses. And maybe even mom's fancy heart shaped German Chocolate Cake.
How do you celebrate Valentimes* Day at your house?
*Emily thinks it's valen-times, not valentines'.
