14 Reasons I Love You


While the kids were at school today, I made my valentine's to them.  Nothing fancy, just lace doily hearts, some construction paper, paint, and glue.  On the back however, I wrote 14 things that I specifically loved about each one of them.  I plan to leave them on their breakfast plates on Valentine's Day.


These are some of the things I wrote to them.
  1. I love the way you smile.
  2. I love the way you help your brother and sister.
  3. I love the way you get excited at little things.
  4. I love you for making my life wonderful.
  5. I love how generous you are.
  6. I love how the expressions on your face tell me how you are feeling.
  7. I love how you laugh.
  8. I love how you always seem to have sticky hands.
  9. I love that you teach me something new each day.
  10. I love that you are gentle.
  11. I love that you are considerate.
  12. I love that you are my child, I'm a lucky mom.
  13. I love that you are a good friend.
  14. I love how much fun we have together.
