52 reasons we love Mommy

I want to tell you about the really cool Valentine's gift the girls and I made for Sandi. 
While Sandi was in Ecuador, we were over at Tricia's (Tia's) house and saw her friend Brittany making one of these for her boyfriend. It is SUCH a cool idea: a deck of cards, a simple ring from the stationary section of Target (plus some decorative paper we had leftover from making valentines) and you have yourself a gift that can hardly contain the love and adoration. All for under $5.
I got the cards all ready by cutting out and gluing on the decorative paper (at 11 pm two nights in a row). Then the girls and I sat down and let the love pour forth.

"We love you because you like apples and peanut butter."

"We love you because you take really good care of us."



I love this one: "We love you Mommy because your smarxt."
Some of my other favorites were: we love you because your bum is so pretty.  We love you because you smell good. We love you because you can bench press us.  We love you because you read to us.  We love you because you play with us. We love you because you look fantabulous. We love you because you smile a lot.

If you wonder how to make a difference in the life of a child, let me tell you what I learned from this: it is pretty simple.  Eat with them, read to them, play with them, adore them, hug them.  We could all use a little of that.

As you might imagine, Sandi loved it. Who wouldn't?
