My daughter is a teacher where her grandson attends school. After school on Valentine’s Day, her 7-year-old grandson came into her classroom carrying a note and looking very perplexed. He handed her the note and asked her to read it. She read out loud, “I, with a heart shape, you.” He said, “Grandma, I’m not ready for this. I don’t even have a house!” When his mother arrived to take him home, he got into the car and asked her, “Will you buy me a house?”

My 3-year-old daughter Adella and I were helping her big brother make solar system valentines. We created an assembly line where big brother carefully wrote the name of a classmate on each valentine, then he slid them to Adella who was in charge of handing me a planetary sticker. I then cut, folded and sealed them with the sticker and crossed the name off the class list. After we had made three valentines, she turned to me and asked, “Why am me doing all the work around here?”

The paper came home from school with my kindergartner, reminding parents that the next Monday was Presidents’ Day. When I explained to my son that there would be no school on Monday because we were celebrating Washington’s and Lincoln’s birthdays, he looked at me and asked, “No school? Am I invited to their parties?”
