Valentine Fail

by GettingFreedom on February 11, 2010

Some may call me a Valentine’s Day Bah-Humbug.  And really, I’m okay with that.  I think the idea behind Valentine’s Day is okay, but it is so commercialized and overrated.  It makes me crazy.

Plus, the beginning of February is crazy in our house.  This year I went to Blissdom, we had a snow storm that caused the kids to miss even more school {they just went back Thursday}, my daughter’s birthday, the kids’ Valentine Parties at school…

Oh wait, what’s that last part??  Could that be the one thing I forgot all about until Thursday??  The day before??

Indeed it is.  There were Valentine Boxes to be made and Valentine’s to be filled out-all in the middle of my daughter’s birthday.

I’d call that a mommy fail at it’s finest.  Thankfully they were {mostly} all smiles.  Although it was pure craziness and chaos!

We made good use out of tissue paper, coffee cans, heart stickers, and felt.  And the totally awesome boot box from my daughter’s new boots.  It turned into a barn, that you can color with doors that open.  A perfect, and free, Valentine box for my farm-loving 4 year old!

It may have started out as a Valentine Fail, but it ended up a Frugal Valentine Success. ;)
